(New Date) Canadian Public Health Week: A Vision to Transform Canada's Public Health System

  • 25 Apr 2022
  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Webinar


Canada’s public health associations are pleased to host the inaugural “Canadian Public Health Week”, 4-8 April 2022. 

Public health is the invisible guardian of our health. The COVID-19 pandemic has made public health more visible and its efforts more appreciated. 

Canadian Public Health Week is a time to recognize the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving our health and well-being.

  • In Quebec, the week runs from 4-10 April and is known as La semaine de la santé durable : Les Québécois·es au cœur de l’économie. Throughout the week, the Association pour la santé publique du Québec will discuss different facets of an economy designed by and for Quebecers. Beyond human activities related to the production, exchange, distribution and consumption of goods and services, they will also focus on the distribution of resources and their sustainable use.
  • On Thursday 7 April, to mark World Health Day, ASPQ has an entire day of programming. Read more here.

Monday 4 April

  • 14:00-15:00 (ET)
    A Vision to Transform Canada's Public Health System with Dr. Theresa Tam ​​​​
    The COVID-19 pandemic represents the biggest public health crisis that our country has confronted in a century. While our public health system and workforce extended itself to respond to COVID-19, public health was challenged in their capacity to address other important and public health issues. The pandemic has highlighted the strengths of our system but it has also exposed vulnerabilities. During this webinar, Dr. Theresa Tam will discuss how we can join forces across communities and sectors to build the public health system that meets the needs of all people in Canada.

    Hosted by the Canadian Public Health Association.
