AbstractThe conditions created by and existing in buildings as they are designed, constructed, operated and inhabited, are those to which Canadians are exposed most often and for the longest duration ? up to 90% of the time, by some estimates. The need to improve the scientific understanding of the health effects associated with buildings, and to understand how building design, construction, and operation influence the physical conditions in buildings, was the impetus that led the NRC Institute for Research in Construction (NRC-IRC), Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, and Health Canada to convene a two-day expert workshop in November 2008. This event brought together approximately 50 Canadian experts from all the various scientific and technical fields that bear on building and health science issues.
