Administrative Structure

Supported by peer-reviewed research grants and contracts (SSHRC, CIHR, Ontario Mental Health Foundation, Women's Xchange, Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care, NOSM, Matawa First Nations, Health Canada, and so on), our staff work with an interdisciplinary group of investigators across four faculties at Lakehead to provide high level quantitative and qualitative research on rural, northern and Indigenous health. The Centre employs a project-specific operational model, with management, faculty, affiliated investigators, staff and student trainees working collaboratively on interdisciplinary teams to implement research and evaluation activities.
