Northern Summit 2023
On November 1, 2023 we brought together people from the north for our annual northern summit. Building community capacity and community-based solutions is key to our program. During this summit we introduced the concept of the Community Animal Health Worker and how this model is implemented internationally, with discussions to find out how this model could be implemented in the north to create greater access to animal health in your community year-round. If you are from the territories and were unable to attend, your insights will still be so valuable in these conversations and to build a program that works for your community. Please find below the presentations and discussion questions.
