and biological, environmental and occupational, social and behaviourial risks
by using the best available methodologies in health risk science.
The McLaughlin Centre serves as a resource to a range of stakeholders, including
government, industry, and the public. Working with its partners in the federal
government, the Centre articulates and analyzes policy options for controlling
health risks, thereby contributing to the management of critical population health
risks in Canada.
working collaboratively within the comprehensive transdisciplinary framework,
