Canada’s North is a sparsely populated area, representing approximately 40% of Canada’s landmass, but fewer than 200,000 people call it home.

Poor social determinants of health, such as overcrowded housing, high unemployment, and unsafe drinking water, are cited as contributing to poorer health outcomes.

This report presents the results of an exploratory study following CSA Group’s earlier research report (“Canada’s North” published in 2017), outlines the numerous health and healthcare issues in Northern communities, and provides recommendations for the potential role of community paramedicine in addressing these issues.
