Building a Breastfeeding Friendly Community

Purpose of this Initiative

  • For businesses and other public places in Okanagan communities to adopt a 'breastfeeding friendly' policy

  • This allows for breastfeeding families to feel welcomed and supported to breastfeed anytime, anywhere in their community

  • Your business will be participating in a community effort that: ​

    • promotes optimal health for children and families​

    • lowers healthcare costs

It's easy to participate - find more information in the pamphlet and complete toolkit below.
