We hope that the stories in this report illustrate the value that the CAREX project offers the prevention system; by monitoring emerging issues and integrating data, fostering networks and making knowledge accessible, we hope to enhance this country’s capacity to assess and address Canadians’ exposures to known and suspected carcinogens.
