Venue: 480 University Ave. Suite 300, Toronto, ON M5G 1V2 Boardroom 350 & Webinar



The Locally Driven Collaborative Projects (LDCP) is designed to help health units meet the foundational standard of the Ontario Public Health Standards by facilitating participation, engagement and uptake of applied research and program evaluation. The designated funding for this stream will allow public health units in partnership with associations, community partners and researchers to explore a topic, intervention or program related to critical public health issues. This session will provide participants with an overview of the 2012 LDCP, including: the priority setting process, program goals and timelines, and upcoming collaborative team building workshops.
