This presentation explores health-focused policy and advocacy opportunities at the local level and how they can shape decisions by elected officials. Drawing from Toronto Public Health's experience, examples of successful, promising, and problematic policy and advocacy positions are discussed with respect to success factors and issues. Examples include e-cigarettes, casinos, menu labelling, cosmetic pesticides, ChemTRAC, complete streets, speed limit reduction, cell towers, and local airport expansion.
