2021 Research Annual Report

A Treetop View

Research focused on a Healthier North

Research at NOSM University stems from unique questions rooted in the need to improve the health of the peoples and communities of Northern Ontario. For years, Canadian health research took place primarily in large centres. This meant many questions related to the health of Northerners were going unanswered, including the incidences of chronic disease, outcomes for patients with mental illness and how work in industries such as mining or forestry affect one’s health. Also left unanswered were specific questions about the health of Indigenous and Francophone communities in the North—two groups that have historically been under-represented in research.
