Richmond residents are generally pretty healthy. Stress levels, obesity, smoking and alcohol rates in adults are lower than comparison groups. Richmond residents live longer on average and sense of community belonging is strong in a few Richmond neighbourhoods. However, recent data suggests that there are several opportunities for improvement, such as more healthy built environments that encourage physical activity, more healthy food outlets in certain neighbourhoods, increased access to transit for more residents, and environments that promote a sense of community belonging.
