LHS is the research arm of Ottawa (De)tours Services Inc., a Canadian federally incorporated business established in 2014, which focuses on urban issues.
The LHS offers hyper-local environmental insights based on known links between various external factors and relevant health outcomes (e.g. relationship between greenspace and mental health).
The LHS employs circular data - the collection, production, and exchange of data and business insights between a series of urban collaborators around a shared set of inquiries (Correa d'Almeida, 2019) - to derive its required insights, in partnership with various organizations (e.g. Ottawa Civic Tech).
