HealthyPlan.City is an analysis and reporting tool that visualizes inequities in urban environmental exposures and built environment goods for a variety of populations in Canadian cities. Individuals selected for one-on-one test sessions will be offered a $100 gift card honorarium. Register to test the tools.
