About Us

Our vision is to be the indispensable online resource for environmental health practitioners and policy-makers across Canada. We focus on health risks associated with the physical environment and identify evidence-based interventions to mitigate those risks.

Our mandate

  • Synthesize, translate, and exchange knowledge for environmental health practitioners and policy-makers.
  • Identify gaps in research and practice knowledge.
