About MUSE

MUSE (Multisectoral Urban Systems for health and Equity in Canadian cities) is a pan-Canadian program of research and knowledge sharing that focuses on how public health organizations, municipalities, and other organizations establish partnerships to improve the health of populations living in urban areas.

MUSE projects aim to understand how multisectoral partnerships (MPs) impact programs, actions, and policies. Particular issues of interest include active transportation and leisure infrastructure, food environments, and housing. These factors allow for safe active living, healthy eating, and affordable housing.

Research and knowledge sharing will occur across Canada with an emphasis in four Canadians cities: Montreal, Saskatoon, Toronto, and Vancouver.
