The Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment (CPCHE) is a national affiliation of organizations with overlapping missions to improve children’s environmental health in Canada.
Working across traditional boundaries, CPCHE aims to advance the protection of children’s health from the risks posed by toxic chemicals and pollutants.
Specifically, the partnership aims to
- move children’s environmental health issues into the minds of decision makers, both on the front lines and at the policy level
- promote children’s environmental health amongst caregivers and the public
- coordinate activities and create efficiencies amongst the partners.
CPCHE partners include environmental, public health, medical, disability advocacy and child-centred organizations. CPCHE partners are the leading voices on children’s environmental health issues in Canada. Collectively, these organizations have decades of experience dealing with environmental issues, promoting the health and well-being of children.
CPCHE Affiliate organizations have shared interests and ongoing interaction with CPCHE, and may engage in CPCHE initiatives on a case-by-case basis.
