The vision of the Healthy people 2020 initiative is to provide “a society in which all people live long, healthy lives.”

Healthy People 2020 strives to:

  • Identify and inform determinants of health, disease, disability and opportunities for progress.
  • Attain high-quality, longer lives 
  • Achieve health equity
  • Create social and physical environments that promote good health
  • Promote quality of life

The City of Ontario has increased access to health services, implemented programs to decrease the consumption of junk food in community centers, and recently adopted a Smoke Free Parks Ordinance to improve quality of life.
