CNA Convention30 Jun, 2012 | Posted by: Shelly

Hilda and I had a wonderful, productive time in Vancouver, BC having met plenty of other interest group members and being able to share the goals and direction of our association with many convention participants. We were particularly thrilled to speak not only to the new President of CNA, Barb Mildon RN PhD CHE CCHN(C), and the new President-Elect, Karima Velji RN PhD CHE, but to connect with so many passionate nurses across Canada and discuss ongoing environmental health issues relevant to Canadians. The CNA Declaration endorsed the need for Canada to protect the environmental gains made, instead of stripping relevant regulations through the passage of Bill C-38. CNHE will continue to work with our partners at CNA and across the country to ensure that environmental issues remains on the forefront of the public agenda.
