Research project: Creating an observatory of health information for Francophone communities outside of Quebec


Researcher Institution Project Description Grant Year(s)
Dr. Louise Bouchard University of Ottawa

Operating Grant: Modelling knowledge on population health – Official Language Minority Communities

Dr. Bouchard's research project is the development of a web-based platform focused specifically on minority Francophone populations. This observatory will bring together statistics and other health data geo-referenced to Francophone communities outside of Quebec to assess to what extent these communities have access to health services and health professionals in their official language of choice.

This information will then be shared with community groups and decision-makers to give a true picture of the health of Francophone communities outside of Quebec and identify gaps and ways to fill them.
