This two-minute whiteboard video describes the experiences of living in unhealthy rental housing conditions and the challenges of getting help. It reflects the stories and perspectives shared by the nearly 80 tenants who participated in RentSafe focus groups in urban and rural communities in Ontario. 

The Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment (CPCHE) is pleased to offer outreach materials on radon and the importance of testing for this indoor lung cancer risk. These plain language resources are ideal for distribution at workplaces, child care centres, tenant and housing organizations, and to anyone concerned about their children’s health.

CPCHE is leading RentSafe, a collaborative initaitive aimed at addressing housing-related health risks affecting tenants on low-income and their families.
