Upcoming webinar:

Health systems are the first line of defense to protect Canadians against the health impacts of climate change. The degree to which populations experience, or are protected from, climate-health impacts largely depends on the availability of adequate local services.  Hospitals and health authorities have frontline roles in offering care and support to the communities they serve and have a vital role in advancing climate change action by translating data and projections into locally relevant policies and programs.  

This presentation will be in two parts.  First, Richard Webster will outline how the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario has developed and implemented a hospital-wide net-zero strategy.  Second, Kady Hunter and Amanda McKenzie, from the Interior Health Authority in British Columbia, will discuss the work Interior Health has done to develop a  Climate Change and Sustainability Roadmap, which will serve as a cohesive overarching strategy to guide population-based climate action and internal corporate sustainability action across the organization.
