In consultation with the BC Non-Profit Housing Association, we are working with a small number of non-profit housing providers to pilot the implementation of smoke-free policies in existing residential buildings. Given the unique opportunities and challenges of the non-profit housing sector, we have chosen to conduct focused, in-depth research to assess the process for implementing smoke-free policies in this sector, and the impact for both non-profit housing providers and the specific communities and clients they serve.
The process will be independently evaluated and the results and model guide will be posted at the completion of the pilot in the Fall of 2009. Non-profit housing providers are encouraged to check back on this website at that time.
Note: If your non-profit housing society is interested in moving forward with a smoke-free policy now, you can review the steps noted in the section on Policy Adoption: Existing Buildings. While this section was tailored for the market-housing sector, it could also apply to some in the non-profit sector.
