Organisation whose object is to end child poverty in Canada.

From November 29 to December 1, 2002, the Centre for Social Justice held a conference entitled: Social Determinants of Health Across the Life-Span: A Current Accounting and Policy Implications. Over 400 Canadian social and health policy experts, community representatives, and health researchers met at York University in Toronto, Canada to: a) consider the state of ten key social or societal determinants of health across Canada; b) explore the implications of these conditions for the health of Canadians; and c) outline policy directions to improve the health of Canadians by influencing the quality of these determinants of health.. Participants have underlined the urgent need for a reduction in health inequality by adopting a charter for a healthy Canada. This charter has been ratified on February 10, 2003. On this Web site, you will find the presentations of the speakers and the abstracts of over 50 research projects currently being conducted across Canada that were presented during the poster session of the conference.
