The project built and demonstrated Canadian leadership at the interface of public health, ecosystems, and equity, by developing an innovative, sustainable, capacity-building program, and established a pan-Canadian partnership including universities across five provinces. Funding of $250,000 over three years for the project came from the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) to support the work of the Canadian Community of Practice in Ecosystem Approaches to Health (CoPEH-Canada). The project was sponsored by PHAC, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), UNBC, Northern Health, and the Canada Research Chair program.
