By coordinating with other data initiatives and networks, CANUE can build on existing efforts to facilitate broader analyses across multiple health datasets. With larger study populations, environmental health researchers can produce more robust and statistically powerful results.


  • The Maelstrom Research project meets the need for tools and resources to facilitate data harmonization and co-analysis across studies. This is essential for the multi-centre collaborations that are of increasing interest in the scientific community.
  • The Pan-Canadian Real-world Health Data Network is working to create a distributed data network that enables multi-province studies without requiring provincial health data be transferred outside of the secure systems already in place.
  • AllerGen unites Canada’s leading experts in allergic diseases and asthma. Working in trans-disciplinary and multi-sectoral teams, and in partnership with organizations and stakeholders across sectors, AllerGen addresses gaps in knowledge and seizes opportunities to generate new preventive strategies, diagnostic tests, therapeutic approaches, medications, public policies, and patient education to reduce the morbidity, mortality and socio-economic impacts of allergy, asthma, anaphylaxis, and related immune diseases.
  • The Maternal Infant Child and Youth Research Network (MICYRN) is a federal not-for-profit, charitable organization founded in 2006 to build capacity for high-quality applied health research. It now links 20 maternal and child health research organizations based at academic health centres in Canada; is affiliated with more than 20 practice-based research networks; provides support to new and emerging teams; and has established strong national and international partnerships.
