At Environmental Health Canada, it is our mission to foster equity, inclusion, and accessibility in all areas for individuals living with the disability of multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS). We aim to raise awareness and eliminate poverty, isolation, and discrimination faced by those with MCS through educational initiatives and advocacy.

Educational Outreach

Foster awareness about MCS among medical professionals, researchers, and the wider public to promote a better understanding of this condition.

Research Initiatives

Undertake research on various aspects of environmental health and MCS, focusing on the causes, diagnostic approaches, treatment options, and the effects of reducing toxic substance use.

Collaborative Research and Knowledge Sharing

Partner in research efforts that explore the connections between environmental exposures and health outcomes.

Advocate for Public Policy

Push for the implementation of public policies aimed at reducing toxic exposures to protect public health.


Join forces with organizations that share similar goals and visions.
