On October 23, 2018, the Centre’s Thierno Diallo offered a presentation during a day of exchanges on Health Impact Assessment (HIA) that was held in Rennes, France.

This webinar, co-hosted by the National Collaborating Centres for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) and Healthy Public Policy (NCCHPP) was organized for the 10th anniversary of the death of Brian Sinclair, an Anishinaabe man who died after waiting for treatment at Winnipeg’s Health Sciences Centre Emergency Room for 34 hours. This was an opportunity to discuss the story of Brian Sinclair in the context of the history of the city of Winnipeg, and the history of health care in the province of Manitoba, and to critically examine anti-Indigenous racism.
The Centre presented a 3-hour session introducing public health ethics at the University of Waterloo’s School of Public Health and Health Systems. In preparation for this session, we updated and reformulated much of the introductory material that we have developed over the last five years.
On June 6 2018, NCCHPP’s Pascale Manoura offered a class on the role of public health in population mental health in the mental health course MSO6080 offered in the master’s program in public health at the School of Public Health at the University of Montréal.
