Two recent meetings on health impact assessment

 On February 7, the Centre received a South Korean academic delegation. The team, led by Dr. Ok Ryun Moon, was sent by the Korean government to learn about key factors for implementing HIA at the government level in Korea. They spent a day with the Centre to learn about the state of HIA in Canada.

On Febraury 22, the Centre reunited a roundtable of experts and Canadian and international actors in health impact assessment in Montréal. The goal of the meeting was to take stock of events to date, and to reflect on actual experiences in HIA at the local and regional levels in Canada. For more information, click here.
