Our mission is to provide evidence-based information to improve the health, fitness and nutrition for people of all ages. BHL is available in 2,000 area locations, with 105,000 people reading us in print monthly and thousands more connecting with us online.

We are at hospitals, medical and dental offices, fitness centers, cafes, restaurants, office buildings, libraries, schools, and select Tim Hortons and 711 stores. We welcome writers, advertisers, and article suggestions. Becoming a legally-incorporated benefit corporation means that BHL has met the highest standards of corporate purpose, accountability, and transparency to create a material positive impact on society and the environment, and we have a fiduciary duty to consider the interests of our stakeholders. We are also required to report on our overall social and environmental performance yearly.
