Foundational resources

Use the Prevention policies directory and related resources to inform your healthy public policy work in Canada.

The Prevention policies database is designed to centralize cancer and chronic disease prevention policies and make knowledge sharing simple, easy and fast. By combining sophisticated and highly targeted search technology with expert human curation, this powerful bilingual tool offers thousands of policy documents across risk factors, policy types, jurisdictions and geographic locations.

For more details on the development of the directory, please refer to the peer-reviewed publication: Supporting the diffusion of healthy public policy in Canada: the Prevention Policies Directory.
