Au Revoir!

This edition of OHPE is, we regret, the last edition for the moment. We must take a hiatus.

If you’d like to partner with Health Nexus so OHPE can resume publication, or if you would like to fund OHPE, please contact

A huge thank you to all our 7800+ readers for your interest over the past twenty years (and more than a thousand issues)!


Below are a few highlights from our subscriber survey last summer.

2017 OHPE Subscriber Survey Highlights

927 subscribers each took a few minutes to answer our survey last summer. Thank you!

Is OHPE useful?

We intend for OHPE to be useful to health promoters, so we investigated a few dimensions of potential usefulness. Overall, subscribers agreed that OHPE is a good tool for information and awareness.


Agree or Strongly Agree

Provided me with better awareness of current issues/situations in health promotion


Provided me with useful information for my work (e.g., ideas, tools, techniques, resources, events)


Increased my connections with or awareness of other organizations/service providers




As ever, OHPE subscribers come from a wide range of sectors related to health promotion:

Public Health


Health, Nutrition, Recreation




Education (school, college, university)




Community Health Centre


Private Sector


General Public


First Nations, Métis, Inuit


Child and/or Youth Group





Geographic Regions

OHPE’s readers work primarily (85%) in Ontario, with 12% working nationally or elsewhere in Canada and 3% working internationally. Our international subscribers work all over – Aruba, Japan, the USA, Australia, UK, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, “primarily countries in Africa,” and more.

Do you read OHPE on a mobile device?

One of the biggest changes since our 2012 survey was the number of people who read (or attempt to read) OHPE on a mobile device: in 2012, 25% said they did; in 2017, it was a little over 47%.

Our 2017 redesign was intended to be more mobile-friendly so we were pleased that all our survey respondents now found OHPE at least “somewhat user-friendly” and some 31% now find it “very user-friendly”.


Again, a big thank you to all our readers and contributors. You have made OHPE what it is.
