Cross-national Consultations on Health and Learning: Final Report on Adults Living in Rural and Remote Areas (2008)

This document grew out of a Health and Learning Knowledge Centre (HLKC) consultation organized by the Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2005.

The meeting saw the establishment of working groups to concentrate on health-related issues for identified priority groups, including adults with low literacy skills; immigrants and refugees; adults affected by HIV/AIDS; and communities that fall well below national or regional health standards.

This report is based on consultations with adults living in three rural and remote areas: Fort Liard in the Northwest Territories; Seaforth, Ontario; and Inverness, Nova Scotia. The authors explain the consultation methodology; list the outcomes of the consultations; provide recommendations from participants on overcoming barriers and filling gaps in health and learning; and list the working group’s suggestions for promoting a knowledge agenda.
