evidence-informed public health

Who We Are

The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) is one of six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health in Canada. The NCCMT provides leadership and expertise in evidence-informed decision making to Canadian public health organizations.

Strengthening public health in Canada

We believe that using evidence to inform public health practice and policy in Canada can improve our public health system and, ultimately, the health of all Canadians. We help you to find and use innovative, high quality, up-to-date methods and tools for sharing what works in public health.

Health Evidence

The Health Evidence registry contains quality-rated systematic reviews evaluating the effectiveness of public health interventions, facilitating immediate identification of best available evidence and eliminating the need for searching individual databases. Registered users receive a monthly evidence service delivering a tailored list of new reviews relevant to each user by email.
