The Canadian Institute of Planners is an active partner in the Healthy Canada by Design CLASP initiative, which stands for "Coalitions Linking Action and Science for Prevention." It unites cross-sector efforts to promote healthy built environments, and translates research into tools to support policy-makers, public health officials, planners and developers in creating more health-promoting communities across Canada. Through this partnership, for instance, Toronto Public Health has produced software for urban and transportation planners to model how urban and transportation planning affect health outcomes.
This CLASP initiative has produced three facts sheets on topics relevant to planners:
Fact Sheet 1: Active Transportation, Health and Community Design: What is the Canadian evidence saying?
Fact Sheet 2: Active Living, Children & Youth: What is the Canadian evidence saying?
Fact Sheet 3: Health Equity and Community Design: What is the Canadian evidence saying?
