The BC Environmental and Occupational Health Research Network (BCEOHRN)  was founded in 2005 through an award from the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research. BCEOHRN is now a not-for-profit organization of BC researchers and information users that aims to:

    1. Improve research capacity through enabling inter-institutional collaboration to develop innovative research ideas.
    2. Support students through mentorship and other activities.
    3. Improve knowledge transfer by hosting one meeting each year that brings together stakeholders (researchers, educators, policy makers, trainees) to address environmental and occupational health issues that are priorities to British Columbians.
