Our Partners

Collaborative Work Goes Further

The Equity in Health Systems (EqHS) Lab is proud to amplify the important work of collaborative partners (listed alphabetically below). We would encourage you to check out their important work and programs by clicking on the links to their websites.

We are looking to collaborate with other like-minded foundations, community groups, institutions, organizations and governmental agencies to help us fulfill our goal.

The Centre for Advancing Collaborative Healthcare and Education (CACHE) is a strategic partnership between the University of Toronto and the Toronto Academic Health Science Network with the University Health Network as lead hospital. We collaboratively lead the University of Toronto’s Interprofessional Education (IPE) curriculum, partnering with 11 health sciences programs and a practice network including more than 15 Toronto hospitals. We collaborate with local, national, and international partners to advance education, practice, research, systems, and policy toward better work and care for all, offering professional development programs and consultation to support this advancement. We keep learners and community, patient/client and family/caregiver partners at the heart of our work.


The Centre for Effective Practice (CEP) is one of the largest independent knowledge translation organizations for primary care in Canada. It brings together knowledge, evidence, expertise and resources to ensure frontline providers have the information they need to deliver high-quality care and improve patients' health outcomes.  In Ontario alone, its work reaches over 18,000 healthcare providers each year through established relationships with key organizations, medical schools, colleges and associations.


Evidence2Practice Ontario (E2P) is working with hospital and primary care partners to improve provider experience and enhance patient care. Together we are designing easy-to-use digital tools and implementation supports that seamlessly integrate the most up-to-date and relevant evidence and quality standards into front-line clinical systems across Ontario.


E2P brings together multi-disciplinary, cross-sector expertise under the joint leadership of the Centre for Effective Practice, eHealth Centre of Excellence and North York General Hospital. It is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health as part of Ontario’s Digital First for Health Strategy with support from Ontario Health.


Dr. Jerry M. Maniate, Founding Director & Investigator at EqHS, is a member of the E2P System Stakeholder Panel and brings expertise from a DAIER (Diversity, Accessibility, Equity, Inclusion and Respect) perspective.

JUMP18 is a team of young Aruban healthcare professionals that under the guidance of a pediatrician, developed a hands-on initiative to empower children and their parents to improve their health and wellbeing.

The vision of JUMP18 is to eradicate the incidence of childhood obesity in Aruba and improve the overall wellbeing of Aruban children.


Sanokondu is a multi-national community of practice invested in healthcare leadership education.  They host and co-host a number of educational events that support this mandate.

Radical Connections.jpg

Radical Connections transforms healthcare together with all kinds of artists. Connecting the arts and health improves quality of life for residents, patients, and everyone working in and visiting healthcare settings. 

Elders are our first priority, as elder care needs radical transformation. Aging in Canada should be a time when people can share their creative wisdom and enjoy access to the arts.

Creative participation is crucial for humanizing healthcare by celebrating individuals as well as the diversity of cultures, abilities, and communities. 

In addition to promoting and enabling Galleries, Studios, and Residencies for Artists, we are excited to initiate Unmasked Match-ups: Personalized, Intimate, Interactive Performances for People in Care.

We are preparing avenues for musicians, storytellers, actors, poets, and playwrights to partner with healthcare organizations, support staff, families, and volunteers; to deliver virtual personal concerts to isolated people in hospitals and residences.


The vision of the University of Ottawa Music and Health Research Institute is to explore the interactions between music and health, and to develop solutions that can improve well-being for individuals and communities.
