In Canada today, more than one in four individuals suffers from respiratory difficulties. Many of these individuals have allergic triggers to their condition. Medical evidence clearly shows that scented products are harmful to the health of those with allergies, environmental sensitivity or chronic heart or lung disease. In considering the health needs and concerns of students and staff alike, we need to provide a healthy working environment for everyone at École Centennial School. Due to the health concerns arising from exposure to scented products, École Centennial School has a policy to provide a scent-free environment for the benefit of all staff, students and visitors.
