Toxics and health: a public dialogue on the future of chemical policy in Canada

On August 30th 2018, join Environmental Defence, David Suzuki Foundation and the Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment for a public dialogue on the impacts of toxic chemicals and pollution on human health.

When: Thursday August 30th 2018 at 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. 
Where: Room 211, Shaw Centre, 55 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, K1N 9J2
This is a free event.

This event aims to foster a meaningful discussion about the opportunities for Canada to better tackle chemical exposures, especially in light of recent government commitments to strengthen our main toxics law, the Canadian Environmental Protection Act (CEPA).

This event will feature Dr. Bruce Lanphear, an internationally recognized scientist based at Simon Fraser University and producer of the Little Things Matter video series. Dr. Lanphear will be joined by other prominent experts and advocates in environmental health, including Erica Phipps, Executive Director of the Canadian Partnership for Children's Health and Environment.
