HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS REPORT:

The mission of Health Canada is to help Canadians maintain and improve their health. Canadians who live in rural, remote, northern and Aboriginal communities face significantly greater health challenges than those living in urban centers for reasons directly related to where they live, risks associated with their occupations and the level of access to timely health care. Rural Canadians believe that Health Canada needs to take a leadership role in facilitating and promoting change in the health care system. Health Canada must ensure that rural concerns are a priority on the federal government’s agenda and that rural voices are heard in discussions about health care in Canada.
