About Us - Our Goal

The main goal of the Centre is to improve the wellbeing of  communities burdened by inequitable environmental health conditions.

To achieve our goal, we: 

1) Foster the collaboration of a diverse knowledge community: We work to provide common ground and strengthen relationships among community experts, academic researchers, policy makers, and other thought leaders who are concerned about environmental health inequities;

2) Advance research: We develop and implement, systematic, creative, and community relevant research-to-action projects based in scientific evidence, policy best practices, and community expertise;

3) Share what is learned: We  build and facilitate dynamic knowledge exchange platforms in order to share new information and ideas to support policy action that results in more equitable environmental conditions in Canada.
