Season's greetings!

As 2018 draws to a close, we want to highlight some of the year’s accomplishments, reflect on emerging and expanding public health issues, and provide our stakeholders with an opportunity to share their knowledge and practice needs so that we can plan for a productive 2019. To review past issues, please visit the newsletter archive on our website. Thank you for your support and partnership. We wish you and yours a joyous holiday season and a healthy and prosperous new year.

Highlights from the past year

Earlier this year we launched the NCCEH blog with posts on a range of topics from microplastics to cannabis legalization to oxycodone detected in mussels. We now have a forum on the Healthy Built Environment in Canada to support cross-sector and pan-Canadian collaboration, discussion and resource sharing. We launched two whiteboard videos (Extreme Heat Can Be A Killer and Radon: Public Action and Cancer Prevention) . If you have suggestions on other environmental public health topics, please let us know.

Your feedback makes us better

NCCEH aims to be responsive to the needs of public health professionals. While our stakeholders are always welcome to send inquiries and feedback when issues emerge, we also want to invite you to tell us your information needs and/or to give feedback on our resources. Our feedback form is available year-round, but now is a great time to share your thoughts and let us know what we can do to help you in your work in the coming year!



NOW LIVE! NCCEH Healthy Built Environment Online Discussion Forum

  • The NCCEH and BCCDC have collaborated to pilot a pan-Canadian online HBE discussion forum for professionals, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers. The forum is free to join and anyone with an interest in built environment-related issues is encouraged to participate. Visitors can read posts without signing in but those wishing to post to the forum will need to create an account. Visit the "Welcome to the Forum" section to get started!
