Invitation for Expressions of Interest--Drifting Second-hand Smoke in Multi-unit Dwellings

Deadline: 4:00 pm Wednesday, January 3rd, 2007


Canadians spend a large portion of their time indoors at home. Thus,
the greatest potential for exposure to environmental hazards, such as
second-hand smoke, is in the home. An emerging area of concern is the
problem of drifting second-hand smoke in multi-unit dwellings. The
Council for Tobacco-free Toronto (CTFT) developed a brochure related to
second-hand smoke in multi-dwelling units for both tenants and
landlords. CTFT is interested in supporting local efforts to develop
solutions to effectively address this problem.

The purpose of this invitation for Expressions of Interest is to engage expert services to

  • Identify tenant, landlord, condominium and property management associations and organizations in Toronto, and
  • Research, develop and evaluate strategies to effectively
    distribute information about the issue of drifting second-hand smoke to
    residents and building representatives in order to initiate efforts in
    developing effective solutions to the problem of drifting second-hand
    smoke in multi-unit dwellings.

Funding Available

Between January and March 2007 approximately $4,000 is available. All
activities, deliverables and expenditures must be completed before
March 31, 2007.
