Healthy Schools
Approximately 3 per cent of Canadians have been diagnosed with environmental sensitivities/ multiple chemical sensitivity (ES/MCS). This represents over 1 million Canadians, many of whom are students or staff of schools. Creating healthier environments for those with ES/MCS can benefit everyone in the building.

The Environmental Health Clinic has released a paper entitled Guidelines to Accommodate Students and Staff with Environmental Sensitivities: A Guide for Schools. The paper is co-written with Canadians for A Safe Learning Environment (CASLE).
