On Healthy Schools Day 2010, Women’s College Hospital’s Environmental Health Clinic will release a paper entitled Guidelines to Accommodate Students and Staff with Environmental Sensitivities: A Guide for Schools. Approximately 3 per cent of Canadians have been diagnosed with environmental sensitivities (ES) or multiple chemical sensitivities (MCS). This represents over 1 million Canadians, many of whom are students or staff of schools. Creating healthier environments for those with ES can benefit everyone in the building. Beginning April 26, 2010 (Healthy Schools Day in Canada) the paper will be available online at Environmental Health Clinic program page at www.womenscollegehospital.ca and at www.casle.ca. The paper is co-written with Canadians for A Safe Learning Environment (CASLE).
