Innovation for a Healthier Atlantic Canada


Over the past fifty years, the Atlantic region has seen large changes to its demographics, economics, and health systems. The population of Atlantic Canada is changing as well. The region is more culturally diverse, youth outmigration has been on the rise, and populations is aging while emergency room closures are a common occurrence. At ACPA 2019, we will discuss the health of Atlantic Canada. Discussions will be focused on economic health, community health, and physical health to share perspectives, best practices, and ideas for a Healthier Atlantic Canada.
