Tools and Research

Peel is working with our area municipalities, as well as planning and health researchers, to create and implement evidence-based tools and guidelines to design neighbourhoods that promote healthy, active lifestyles.


Background Research

The Region of Peel is a partner in the Coalitions Linking Action & Science for Prevention (CLASP) project. The initiative unites existing and emerging cross-sector efforts to promote healthy built environments. Core to the mandate of the coalition is to translate the latest research in this field into state-of-the-art tools to support policy-makers, public health officials, planners and developers in tapping into the many opportunities brought by healthy built environments. Under this initiative, Peel Public Health has completed three projects: Healthy Development Index, Healthy Background Study Framework, and the Residential Preferences Study

Health Canada, through the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer's CLASP initiative, as well as the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
