The Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment (CPCHE, ‘kip-chee’) is a national collaboration of organizations with overlapping missions that have been working together since 2001 to improve children’s environmental health in Canada. Our aim is to increase awareness, mobilize knowledge and catalyze action to ensure that all children in Canada have healthy environments in which to live, learn, play and grow.

Healthy Schools Day

As the national lead for Healthy Schools Day, CPCHE unites the efforts of a broad array of organizations, sectors and youth advocates to raise awareness and encourage action on environmental health issues in early learning and school environments across Canada.



RentSafe is an intersectoral initiative, led by CPCHE, that aims to address unhealthy housing conditions affecting tenants living on low income in both urban and rural communities in Ontario.
