A CPCHE-led, multi-sectoral initiative to address housing-related health risks for low-income tenants and their families

Subscribe to RentSafe updates     CPCHE is leading an ambitious initiative to address unhealthy housing conditions affecting tenants living on low income in both urban and rural communities in Ontario. With active involvement of public health, legal aid clinics, community health and other stakeholder organizations as well as tenants and housing providers, we aim to build awareness and capacity across multiple sectors so that low-income tenants, when faced with lead, mould, radon and other indoor health threats, are better able to get the support they need to achieve healthier living conditions for themselves and their families.This 3-year initiative, launched in December 2014, is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation and supported by in-kind contributions and involvement of multiple partners.
