About the Event

CANUE headerThe Canadian Urban Environmental Health Research Consortium (CANUE) aims to:

  • characterize every postal code in Canada using a large suite of urban form metrics (various measures of greenness, walkability, nighttime light, air quality, noise, climate) going back to the 1980s, and setting up the structure to go forward for decades to come; and

  • make these metrics available to Canada's largest cohort and health data stewards, so environmental health researchers can start tackling the questions of how ALL these factors interplay and affect individual health.

Achieving these goals will mean that research made possible by CANUE can provide evidence on how urban form influences health, beyond what we already know or suspect. CANUE data will also be immediately useful to explore variation in environmental equity across Canadian neighbourhoods and over time, perhaps even enabling the evaluation of past urban planning initiatives.

Our membership is gathering in Toronto to formalize our plans for data development and sharing, environmental health research, and knowledge translation and exchange.

If you:

  • are affiliated with an academic institution, government or non-governmental agency with a mandate related to urban environmental health, or active in the develpoment and implementation of policy that can affect environmental quality and/or landuse
  • can commit to active involvement in at least one of CANUE's teams,
