We will feature selected examples on our website, as well as in our e-bulletin and on Twitter, in both English and French: this would be a great opportunity to increase your work's exposure and to inspire your colleagues in public health!

To begin with, we are looking for examples of how you have used and/or adapted our framework for analyzing public policies.

Interested? All you have to do is fill out a questionnaire (10 questions) and send it back to us by no later than December 6, 2017. Click here for more information.

Back in spring 2017, the Centre welcomed the Université de Montréal's Louise Ringuette for a practicum placement. With her help, the Centre led a survey of Canadian public health stakeholders at all levels on the ethics resources they use in practice and their needs for additional tools and training. Based on the data presented in the soon to be published preliminary report from this survey of practitioners, Louise will present a poster at this year's JASP.

CPAC's new Pathways to Policy resources for built and food environment policy development and implementation
.

The Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) is pleased to announce updated and new Pathways to Policy resources for built and food environment policy development and implementation.

These resources highlight key lessons learned from the Partnership's Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention (CLASP) initiative projects that brought together multidisciplinary and multi-sectoral partnerships to catalyze the uptake of evidence-based cancer prevention policy. The Pathways to Policy resources describe the underlying critical success factors that emerged from CLASP work in two key areas:

1. Physical Activity & Built Environment


2. Nutrition & Food Environment
