April 11th is Healthy Schools Day in Canada. Check out our Tools for Schools collection for tips on what you can do to make a difference for kids.

Children in Canada spend many of their waking hours in schools and child care settings. As parents, educators and community members, we can all play a part in making these environments healthier for kids.

Healthier and safer learning environments – those with cleaner air and reduced exposures to toxic substances – promote children’s health, academic achievement and well-being.

Please visit our Tools for Schools collection for CPCHE resources and external links. The collection provides information and tips for reducing exposures to toxic chemical and pollutants in both indoor and outdoor settings.

For more information on Healthy Schools Day, check out the website of  Canadians for a Safe Learning Environment (CASLE) website and the US-based Healthy Schools Network.
