AbstractThe First Canadian Building and Health Sciences Workshop brought together 50 Canadian experts from the building sciences and health sciences to discuss the state of knowledge at the intersection of those disciplines, to develop plans for how to address knowledge gaps, and to begin to break down barriers preventing both interdisciplinary research and knowledge transfer. This paper summarizes the discussions that took place at the workshop and outlines the next steps to be taken towards the ultimate goals of improved health for Canadians and improved Canadian building performance.
