RentSafe is about people and organizations working together.
RentSafe is an intersectoral initiative led by the Canadian Partnership for Children’s Health and Environment (CPCHE).
The RentSafe Project Team, led by Erica Phipps, CPCHE Executive Director, guides and implements RentSafe activities, often in collaboration with others.
RentSafe has benefitted from the guidance and involvement of a broadly diverse RentSafe Advisory Committee
Organizations that have led or contributed to specific RentSafe activities include:
- CEHE / Queen’s University
- Community Voices / Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force
- Grey Bruce Health Unit
- McMaster University
- M’Wikwedong Indigenous Friendship Centre
- Ryerson University
- The Local Community Food Centre
- The Table Community Food Centre
- Thunder Bay District Health Unit
- York Region Public Health
The first three years of RentSafe (2015 – 2018) were made possible by a grant to CPCHE, via the Environmental Health Institute of Canada as the lead CPCHE partner, from the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
The RentSafe EquIP research project in Owen Sound, which builds on the Ontario-wide RentSafe initiative, is led by the Centre for Environmental Health Equity (CEHE, Queen’s University) and funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
