The Canadian Network for Human Health and the Environment (CNHHE)


The Network is concerned with broad human health-related environmental issues relating to air, water, soil, food, climate change, and consumer products. Membership is free and open to non-governmental, research, and healthcare professionals, government policy-makers and individuals who are interested in the connections between human health and environmental exposures.


The primary focus of the  Canadian Network for Human Health is to engage members in the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP), run jointly by Health Canada and Environment and Climate Change Canada

  • Inform members about substances being assessed by the CMP via e-mail, the website, and social media. 
  • Engage members in the CMP’s public comment periods about draft screening assessment and proposed risk management documents. 
  • Select delegates to attend CMP stakeholder consultations. 
  • Educate the broader public about environmental health issues. 

Together, we can achieve wellness for all

We have a vision of a healthy, resilient Canada where human health and the environment are thriving. Our services and programming rely on donations from people like you. You can help champion environmental health by donating today, becoming a monthly donor, or leaving a legacy gift in your will.

The Foundation for Resilient Health is a project of the New Brunswick Lung Association, a registered charity with over 100 years of trusted health services in our community.

Engagement in the public comment periods is sometimes achieved through free online webinars about a particular substance. Participants learn about the substance from those with expert knowledge. Comments and questions on draft documents about the substance are then summarized and sent to the Chemicals Management Plan (CMP).

Experts on various chemicals are also solicited to provide comments for which we can pay an honorarium.
