Research Program

Multiple cities, multiple sectors, and multiple ways of working together

Public health is defined as the organized efforts of society to keep people healthy and prevent injury, illness, and premature death. It is a combination of programs, services, and policies that protect and promote the health of all Canadians.

MUSE aims to understand various multisectoral partnerships (MPs) that are created to make changes to the built environment to promote the health of citizens across different urban settings. Although some of the potential actors are similar (such as public health officials, municipalities, etc.), their structure, functioning, and resulting initiatives may differ across cities in Canada.
