• We moved!

    With our lease at the RCA building in St-Henri coming to an end, an  opportunity presented itself to rent offices in the wonderful Maison Parent-Roback, a stone's throw from Metro Parc. So we jumped at it!

    We left St. Henri and the historic RCA building on January 12 where we were happy for almost five years and moved to a new home.

    Our new address is 461 Jean-Talon West, room 430, Montreal, H3N 1R4.

  • PREVENTION IS YOUNG

    Many people are surprised by the extent of our work with young people.

    Indeed, our Youth Program has many branches. We work with university students who support our mission and want to organize events on campuses with us to educate other students and the public on our work. We work with community groups that work with young people offering our workshops on health and the environment and/or leading DIY activities (Do It Yourself activities making homemade personal care products).

    And now we work with high school students offering our innovative program, Health Connections: Young People Connecting with their Environment and Communities.

  • We applaud committee recommendations to improve CEPA.

    Now it's time for Parliament to act!

    The Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development released its CEPA review.

    This report is an essential starting point to reforming the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA) so that Canadians are truly protected from the toxic substances harming our health.

    The report's recommendations must be implemented. The state of our health and that of our ecosystems depend on it.
