Note to Readers

This is a condensed version of the full 350-­‐page report that was prepared as the background

document to support the CPHA Discussion Document on the ecological determinants of health.

While we believe the full report is a valuable resource, with each of its 8 main chapters fully

referenced and footnoted, and packed with figures, tables and text boxes, we recognise it is more

than many people will want to read. So we present here a precis of the report, including references

to the sources cited and a few of the key figures and tables; for the remainder of the figures, tables

and text boxes readers are referred to the main report, which we hope will be available later in


In addition, these technical reports form the basis for the CPHA Discussion Document that was

released in May 2015.

The views expressed herein are solely those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the

official policies or positions of the Canadian Public Health Association.
