This pre-conference session, organized by the National Collaborating Centre for Healthy Public Policy, comprised two independent but complementary half-day workshop sessions. The morning session focused on the practice of HIA: its fundamentals, the main steps and related tools. In the afternoon session, we explored how HIA can help to promote safe and active travel in residential development project design. To illustrate, we presented an example of a recent HIA by a regional health authority in Québec, and a grid developed to formulate recommendations promoting safe and active travel in residential development projects.
