At CoPEH-Canada we design custom-made workshops and courses, for all levels, sectors and subjects touching on ecosystem approaches to health. We can work with groups interested in ecosystem approaches to health to tailor our teaching materials (see teaching manual for examples) and grant writing skills to your needs.

Please contact us if you are interested in running a workshop or short course on or using ecosystem approaches to health. We can help you!

Below you will find a sampling of workshops we have run and collaborations we are involved in.

Intersectoral prevention research

CoPEH-Canada is collaborating with four independent groups submitting full applications to the CIHR call for applications for Team Grants: Environments and Health: Intersectoral Prevention Research. Read this PDF document to learn more about intersectoral prevention research at the CoPEH-Canada, our areas of expertise and ideas for collaboration. Two of the teams which made successful applications to CIHR’s competition for intersectoral prevention on health and environment involve direct collaborations with CoPEH-Canada. 

  • “The ECHO (Environment, Community, Health Observatory) Network: Strengthening intersectoral capacity to understand and respond to health impacts of resource development”, is co-led by Margot Parkes at UNBC and Sandra Allison at Northern Health in BC, along with a team from across Canada, including regional cases in British Columbia, Alberta and New Brunswick
  • A Shared Future: Achieving Strength, Health and Autonomy through renewable energy development for the future focuses on first nation's health and is co-lead by Heather Castleden at Queen's University, and a pan-Canadian team.
