Propel Centre for Population Health Impact

The Propel Centre for Population Health Impact is a collaborative enterprise that conducts research, evaluation and knowledge exchange to accelerate improvements in the health of populations in the areas of tobacco control, youth health and capacity development.

Propel’s niche is relevant and rigorous science that informs policies and practice to prevent cancer and other chronic diseases. We work with leaders in science, policy and practice, to jointly plan, conduct, and act on studies that lead to improvements in policies and programs and guide change. We are committed to moving evidence into action.

Propel was founded by the Canadian Cancer Society and the University of Waterloo.
