Goals and Objectives


The goal is to ensure a future where children and adolescents with special needs can combine the riches of life in rural, remote and northern communities with the best services Canada has to offer.


  1. To improve accessibility to useful information and services by, for example, identifying gaps in existing knowledge and providing access to useful, critically evaluated information including heritage knowledge and world views;
  2. To improve access to appropriate service delivery by, for example, identifying culturally appropriate models for alternate service delivery, program development, training and evaluation with special emphasis on the potential of new and emerging technology; and
  3. To augment community capacity to influence policy by, for example, assisting communities in developing support networks.
