Health Monitoring

Health monitoring is accomplished through the preparation of health indicator reports, participation in collaborative research projects, and partnering with various stakeholders on projects that impact the health and social wellbeing of northern communities and residents. The Population Health Unit utilizes data from a variety of sources including the collaborative research studies and local projects that we participate in, provincial and national reports, administrative databases and registries, surveys and census, as well as “in-house” data.
