Cancer and the Environment

We are working with First Nations to identify and reduce exposure to harmful pollutants in the environment, in partnership with CAREX Canada, the Propel Centre for Population Impact, and the First Nations Environmental Health Innovation Network, and with funding from CIHR.
Since 2009, we have been working with representatives of First Nations communities and organizations across Canada, initially developing a Strategic Plan for disseminating the CAREX Canada information and tools. We are now collaboratively developing resources and training as best practices case studies.
We would like to acknowledge the substantial contributions of past SSRL researcher, Karla Poplawski and Anders Erickson.
