Information Grid - Canadian HIA Initiatives
Information grids on three Canadian HIA initiatives at the local level.
Published in May 2010.  Description.
.
In February 2008, the NCCHPP participated in organizing a Canadian workshop of experts in the field of Health Impact Assessment (HIA). The goal was to reflect on the different issues and possibilities for the development of HIA in Canada. This meeting also helped the Centre to clarify its role in terms of supporting local HIA initiatives across Canada.

One way in which we learned that we could support local HIA initiatives was by helping to capture the main steps they followed, and then sharing information about them with a broader audience. To this end, the Centre developed a model for an HIA information grid, and then worked with three local HIA initiatives to develop information grids relating to their work. 
 
Here are three grids that emerged from projects we have been following: the PATH project that conducted an HIA for a recreational centre project in Nova Scotia, 
a City of Toronto initiative considering a proposal for processing mixed waste to reduce landfill,  as well as a proposal for a tricomposting plant project in Montérégie, Quebec.

These initiatives, supported by the Centre, used an HIA or a similar approach as a way to act upon policies at the local level.

A blank grid is also available for people who are interested in HIA and who would like to share their experience with us.
