THE FOUNDATION FOR RESILIENT HEALTH (RESILIENT)
The goal of our foundation is to help Canadians improve our personal and collective health and that of our natural support system, the environment.
Understanding that both the social and environmental determinants of health differ depending on where and how one lives, we seek to improve resiliency for all, through advocacy for policy change and through education and engagement of Canadians.
Our organization is built on the strong foundation of the New Brunswick Lung Association and the Canadian Network for Human Health and the Environment, expanding on our work with health professionals, other health and environment organizations, and on our expertise in environmental health. The Foundation for Resilient Health springboards from this history, trust, and evidence-based expertise, into the realm of promoting the key pillars of resilient health.
We are located in the only bilingual province of Canada and are able to operate bilingually across the country.
We currently have an exciting federal advocacy campaign under development and we are encouraging like-minded organizations to sign-on.
Engagement of Canadians
The Foundation for Resilient Health offers programs that enable Canadians to take positive actions to improve their health resilience. Through face-to-face engagement and on-line programs and tools, Canadians can learn more about health risks present in our environment and take progressive steps to protect their own health and that of their families.

Together, we can achieve wellness for all, and an environment to support us for generations to come.
