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

CPCHE is leading an ambitious new initiative to address indoor environmental health risks affecting low-income tenants in both urban and rural communities. With active involvement of public health, legal aid, community health and other stakeholder organizations as well as tenants themselves, we aim to build awareness and capacity in the social services sector 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, with the Environmental Health Institute of Canada serving as the lead CPCHE partner organization.
