BC Centre for Disease Control

UBC CDC is a joint venture of a provincial government agency (the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control) and an academic institution (the University of British Columbia).  The BC CDC houses the reference public health microbiology laboratory of the province and is part of the Canadian Food and Water Safety Network. Linkages to the Department of Civil Engineering Environmental Group are being built to ensure cooperative research and development of protocols for provincial drinking water protection.

BC Environmental and Occupational Health Research Network


The BC Environmental and Occupational Health Research Network (BCEOHRN) supports BC's environmental and occupational health researchers by building linkages and providing funding.  Bridge students and mentors have been active in this new network, which began in 2004.

Pop Data

The BC Linked Health Data Base is a collection of linkable, person-specific data about all residents of the province, starting in 1985: births; deaths; hospital discharges; physician visits; prescribed drugs; continuing care system use; mental health services use; incident cancers; and occupational injury and disease claims.  A major expansion of this infrastructure has been funded by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation, BC Knowledge Development fund and Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research: PopulationDataBC. It will make possible linkage of data on educational attainment, environmental and occupational exposures, motor vehicle injuries, labour force dynamics, and income assistance.
