Ensuring the Integration of Children’s Environmental Health Protection into Energy Efficiency Programs

CPCHE is undertaking a two-year project funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation, with CELA as the lead CPCHE partner, to address opportunities for improved integration of children's environmental health issues into energy efficiency retrofit programs. Our baseline assessment (report released in March 2011) indicates  that there is much work to be done — together with much interest and commitment among stakeholders — to ensure that, as we invest in making homes more energy efficient, we seize the opportunity to also make homes healthier and safer for their occupants. We also know that risks are greatest for children living in low-income circumstances and these families also have the greatest need for lowering their energy costs. We are working towards a "win-win" solution of homes that are more energy and cost efficient and healthier for children and their families.This collection aggregates the results from this project as well as useful on-line resources.
