The Regional Health Services Act requires Health Authorities to establish one or more Community Advisory Networks (CANs) to help facilitate consultation with and input from local communities. CANs advise the Authority on broad issues related to the health of the community, and assist the Authority to understand the needs and priorities of communities and their residents.
PNRHA's policy around Community Advisory Networks reflects the diverse nature of CANs in Prairie North Health Region. The policy recognizes and supports existing organizations as CANS or accepts new groups created by communities themselves, within the Community Advisory Network framework, rather than focusing solely on creation of CANs by the Region.
