⚖ Practical Case Study – Healthy Retrofits:


From public outreach to summary advice to representation to law reform advocacy and back to public outreach. This multi-year effort builds on CELA’s foundational work on children’s environmental health, the client case study is one of progression from receiving public legal education materials, to seeking summary advice, to obtaining representation, to successful resolution of issues for client and entire affected building. This matter then formed the basis for a successful Trillium foundation grant to research broader problem and develop solutions-focused recommendations for law reform and public legal education.


⚖ Practical Case Study – RentSafe

Further building on work of addressing children’s environmental health and indoor environmental exposures, this multi-year, multi-sectoral effort seeks to achieve healthy rental housing by building capacity and greater integration across a complex system of diverse service providers, tenants, and landlords.

⚖ Additional professionalism


Work-life balance before and during COVID pandemic.
