CHILDREN'S ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH CLINIC:  ChEHC Department of Pediatrics, University of Alberta University of Alberta ( is recognized as a collaborating centre by the WHO.  It is a unique program addressing the impacts on children’s health from environmental exposures (chemical, biological, physical, and social). The program considers all environmental factors to assess exposures, by integrating clinical, research and educational components.  The clinic has partnered with the EHFC Board to conduct an indoor air pollution survey project, the first of its kind in Canada.   


Indoor air pollution has a critical influence on human health, however considerable knowledge gaps remain. Our unique and timely interdisciplinary collaboration will generate multifaceted data describing opportunities to provide feasible options to improve population health through simple strategies including identifying products and activities that impact air quality and builds future opportunities in this highly under-represented area of research. 


This interdisciplinary collaborative pilot project proposes a descriptive analysis aligning detailed home information, including appliances, household characteristics, activities, and product use with high sensitivity chemical analyses of air samples taken from each home.  There is an opportunity for Concordia students/practicum students to be involved in the project.  Thanks to our 2023 donors the EHFC Board has raised $5,000 to cover the cost of this research project.
