The National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) seeks to increase the expertise of public health actors across Canada in healthy public policy through the development, sharing and use of knowledge. Contact us.     

In the Spotlight this Month -  Prevention Policies Directory
The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC), with support from the NCCHPP, presents a bilingual, searchable database of federal, provincial, territorial and municipal policies related to cancer and chronic disease prevention.

Freely-accessible and regularly updated, this online tool makes it easier for Canadian research, practice and policy specialists to find information on policies related to cancer and chronic disease prevention.
