What We Do

The Centre for Coastal Health (CCH) is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is to identify and understand the interactions of human, animal and environmental health. We do this by undertaking problem-oriented research, risk assessments, research planning, policy development, field investigations, program evaluations, and education. The CCH provides objective solutions to health issues and does not take advocacy positions. Our projects are funded through competitive grants, contribution agreements with government, and fee-for-service contracts.
