Each year, the Institute for Health and Social Policy hosts a series of events. These include conferences and workshops with national and global participation, as well as a seminar series for the local community of students, faculty, staff, and others. These events explore what is known about how social and environmental conditions impact on health and how this knowledge can be translated into policies and programs that make a difference. If you are interested in being added to our mailing list for seminar series, please click on the tab to the left or contact Jennifer Proudfoot by jennifer [dot] proudfoot [at] mcgill [dot] ca (email) or by phone at (514) 398-8683

Calls for Applications: Research to Policy Dragon’s Den.

Deadline to Apply: May 6th, 2016.

This program is a unique training opportunity for participants to take on an important current policy challenge.  Mentored by a select group of academics, policy, practice and media experts, participants will develop a concrete proposal for policy change and effective strategies for moving it to action.

Topic in 2016: Refugee Settlement Policy.

We will explore the different ways that refugees make their ways to Canada (government-assisted, privately sponsored, asylum seekers) and the policy frameworks that shape their experiences once they are here.
