A Collaborative Initiative to Address Indoor Environmental Health Risks Affecting Low-Income Tenants in Ontario

RentSafe is an intersectoral initiative, led by the Canadian Partnership for Children's Health and Environment (CPCHE), of which CELA is a founding partner. It's primary aim is to improve knowledge, capacity and responsiveness with the health and social services sectors to better address housing-related health risks facing low-income tenants, as an important step towards the goal of creating healthier living conditions in low-income/marginalized communities and reducing housing-related health inequities.

CELA is a founding partner and serves on the RentSafe Project Team.  For more information on the project, and many more resources generated through this project please see visit or contact Erica Phipps, CPCHE Executive Director at
