Environmental Health

Environment is what is all around us. For Eeyou and Eenou people, the land and water are a part of us and essential for miyupimaatisiuun. We are concerned about the need to protect the environment, live well and be safe when we are in the bush, and also make sure our houses and communities are safe.

Within the Public Health department, two program officers and one doctor work in the Environmental Health program, which is part of the Chishaayiyiu team.
