About Propel

At the Propel Centre for Population Health Impact, we work with others to bring about change. Change in thinking - Change in knowledge - Change in policy - Change in behaviour. We seek, generate, translate, and provide evidence for change.

Propel has a 24-year history as a national research program of the Canadian Cancer Society, and exists to improve the health of people and places by leading relevant and rigorous studies, and moving evidence into action.

Our in-house team consists of scientists and highly skilled staff who engage with more than 400 policy, practice and research colleagues across Canada and beyond. This engaged approach by the Propel team  leverages different perspectives and competencies to solve complex problems, and is central to the relevance, excellence and impact of our work.
