A project within the Public Health Agency of Canada National Projects Fund

Children's environmental health was among five priorities chosen by the Public Health Agency of Canada's National Projects Fund to conduct information needs assessment projects among over 700 Community Action Program for Children and Canada Prenatal Nutrition Program (CAPC-CPNP) projects across Canada. During 2009-10, Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House in Vancouver, in partnership with the Canadian Environmental Law Association as the lead CPCHE Partner, conducted a year long needs assessment culminating in a detailed report recommending detailed ways of meeting the information needs identified. Considered Phase one of a two-part exercise, during 2011 PHAC will determine if and when Phase Two occurs.

This collection includes results from Phase One. See also a related collection of resources created for staff in CAPC-CPNP programs.
