Dear members,

CIPHI is excited to announce that we are upgrading our communication platform for emailing information to members. The Listserv platform currently in use will be switched over to Mailchimp effective March 1, 2024. All CIPHI members in the Member Service Centre portal will be added to the Mailchimp distribution for CIPHI notifications. 

CIPHI members are asked to verify their member email addresses listed in the MSC portal ( ) to ensure all MSC member emails are accurate and up-to-date by February 29th, 2024.   

Once the switchover has occurred, Mailchimp will have an unsubscribe button at the bottom of the e-blast email should you wish to unsubscribe from the distribution list from a particular email account. Any non-members currently subscribed to the Listserv who want to remain informed of CIPHI notification emails can go to the webpage and click on the SUBSCRIBE button on the top right of the website page.

If you would like to send out an e-blast to the CIPHI email subscription, please email: with your request after March 1st. Before sending, please conduct a comprehensive review of NOP #18 Appendix B to ensure complete adherence to e-blast requirements.

As part of the Centre of Professional Excellence (CoPE) requirements for professional development hours, we strive to provide our members with education in the professional competencies for environmental public health professionals. We offer monthly education sessions for members to grow, learn, and connect with others.

The call for Abstracts is now open and can encompass technical presentations, ongoing research and initiatives, and skill building opportunities. Environmental public health is the cornerstone of safe and thriving communities. Abstracts are welcomed from all public health partners and industry professionals.

Submission deadline is the last Friday of each month.

Selected speakers will be contacted by email and given 3 weeks of notice of an intended session date. For more information, email and download the Speaker Abstract Submission Form.
