The Centre's Olivier Bellefleur participated in a panel discussion of experts in public health and transportation planning to present some of the Healthy Canada by Design CLASP (Coalitions Linking Action & Science for Prevention) projects that are seeking to promote safe active transport through favourable built environments.

The panel featured five other speakers representing organizational members of CLASP – Healthy Canada by Design:

• Gayle Bursey (moderator), Director of Chronic Disease and Injury Prevention at the Region of Peel Health Services Department. 

• Gene Chin, Project Manager for the Healthy Canada by Design CLASP initiative, Heart and Stroke Foundation Canada.

• Meghan Winters, Assistant Professor with the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University.

• Peter Truch, Transportation Manager with Opus International Consultants.

Olivier's presentation discussed the steps taken to develop an active transportation analysis grid for medium-sized residential development proposals which is designed to help public health actors make recommendations to support safe and active transportation. He also presented some of the recommendations on street and network design that resulted from its use in the context of a health impact assessment of a new residential development project in a small municipality in Québec.
