Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment
The Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment is an organization of over 4700 physicians and concerned citizens from Canada focusing on educating health professionals on environmental issues. As one of its accomplishments, the organization produced a 322-page handbook on environmental threats and how citizens can effectively counteract them. The book is entitled The Canadian Guide to Health and the Environment. (See endnote 63.) The group is deeply involved in children’s environmental health issues.
Canadian Partnership for Children's Health and Environment
The Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment is an affiliation of groups with overlapping missions to improve children’s environmental health in Canada. The Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment is a consortium of 16 organizations made up of physicians, childcare experts, environmental law experts, learning disability experts, medical schools, public health officials, and pollution specialists in collaboration with the Canadian Institute for Public Health Inspectors Ontario Branch and the Ontario Association of Supervisors of Public Health Inspectors.
They produce documents of great value to practitioners. Advancing Environmental Health in Childcare Settings—A Checklist for Child Care Practitioners and Public Health Inspectors is an outstanding example of their work. (See endnote 64.)
