We are the Canadian Centre for Rural and Agricultural Health

The Canadian Centre for Rural and Agricultural Health is an embodiment of research, service, and outreach to support improved health outcomes for rural and agricultural people in Saskatchewan, across Canada, and around the world. To showcase who we are and the work we do, we developed this video so others can see, hear, and feel our impact in rural and agricultural communities throughout Saskatchewan. 

Thank you for putting your boots on the ground with us.
