Northern Health is responsible for the delivery of health care across Northern British Columbia, including acute care, mental health, public health, addictions, and home and community care. The Authority covers almost two-thirds of BC’s landscape, which is home to over 30,000 people.
Innovation and Development Commons
The Innovation and Development Commons (IDC) is a partnership between Northern Health and the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC). It aims to facilitate education, research, and innovation in the North, ultimately improving the quality of life and health outcomes for Northerners.
University of Northern British Columbia
Located in the spectacular landscape of northern British Columbia, UNBC is one of Canada’s best small universities. We have a passion for teaching, discovery, people, the environment, and the north.
UNBC is a university both in and for the north, and this mission has instilled a strong sense of ownership, purpose, and adventure among our students, alumni, faculty, staff, and the communities we serve. We are also Canada’s Green University™ , leading the way to a more sustainable future for all.
The Canadian Rural Health Research Society
The Canadian Rural Health Research Society offers the opportunity for researchers and their collaborators to network with new and established researchers of many disciplines engaged in rural, remote and northern health research. Each year, at our annual scientific meetings in October, we discuss current findings and seek to build new and extend existing networks among those with common research interests and goals. In the autumn of 2002, we changed our name to the Canadian Rural Health Research Society from the Consortium for Rural Health Research.
