Dawson part of $4.95 M grant to support healthy cities

August 18th, 2021

Dawson has been selected along with nine other institutions across Canada to implement a major federal grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

With over 80% of Canadians living in cities, the grant is intended to provide real-world data about what kind of environmental factors such as green space and air quality, or social supports such as housing and services, create better health outcomes, well-being and equity for different populations. The grant is a $4.95 million investment over six years in a research training platform that will guide the development of a new generation of health, social sciences and humanities, engineering and natural sciences researchers, to find ways to make Canadian cities healthier, more livable, and more resilient.

As part of the grant, Dawson has the opportunity to provide training to graduate students and act as a link between the lead researchers and community organizations in Montreal.

According to Anna-Liisa Aunio, Coordinator of Dawson’s Environmental Studies Profile and the lead for the project on behalf of Dawson, this type of applied research is becoming more and more common.
