The mission of the Environmental Health Association of Canada is to achieve equity, inclusion, and accessibility in all spaces for people experiencing the disability of environmental sensitivities/multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS), by promoting education and working to eliminate poverty, isolation, and discrimination experienced by this population group.

To accomplish this mission, we will:

  • Work with and provide information to government, health care professionals, academics, industry, consumer and social groups about the specific needs of people experiencing MCS, in order to obtain services and accommodation for the inclusion and accessibility of the disability of MCS,
  • Promote an understanding among physicians, scientists, and the general public about MCS,
  • Conduct research in all aspects of environmental health and MCS including underlying mechanisms; diagnostic and treatment methods for MCS; and impacts of toxics use reduction,
  • Encourage, participate and collaborate in Research and Knowledge Translation by addressing links between environmental exposures and health;
  • Work to establish public policies that will curb toxic exposures and safeguard health;
  • Collaborate with like-minded groups,
  • Work towards healthy housing to accommodate this disability across Canada.
