Hans Kai

hans ki participants with certificates

HANS KAI is a community-led health program developed and delivered through NorWest Co-op Community Health and is available across Canada. It teaches groups about factors that influence their health such as diet, physical activity, social support and physical health and gives them the tools and knowledge to monitor these indicators.

Where did Hans Kai come from?

HANS KAI means group meeting in Japanese and was originally offered by health co-ops in Japan. HANS KAI participants get together to improve their health through nutrition, exercise and monitoring. It was brought to North America by NorWest Co-op Community Health in Winnipeg, Manitoba and Cooperative Santé Robert-Cliche in Beauceville Quebec.

How does Hans Kai work?

NorWest Co-op offers HANS KAI in communities and workplaces for all ages. Trained HANS KAI professionals teach a nine session health school that gives group participants the tools and skills to stay healthy and meet independently. Participants attend sessions focusing on healthy eating, fitness stress management, physical health markers and empowerment.

After completing the health school, HANS KAI groups meet independently where each group enjoys a healthy snack, takes part in exercise suited to their mobility, checks their health indicators, and socializes with their group members.
