Brent Butt's CTV show, Corner Gas, is a Canadian institution that is drawing raves at home and around the world. But even before creating Canada's most-watched sitcom, Butt was already being referred to as "one of the funniest men in the country."


The Symposium kicks-off on Sunday October 19th with a panel of plenary speakers.  The Canadian Rural Health Research Society (CRHRS) is pleased to be sponsoring Professor Brian Kelly, Director, Centre for Rural & Remote Mental Health, The University of Newcastle, Orange, New South Wales.

Following the plenary, the CRHRS will be hosting an afternoon scientific session entitled, Rural Health in Changing Environments.  The session will showcase research on a wide variety of rural health topics from all disciplines. Please check on the abstract form if you would like your abstract to be considered for the CRHRS special session on Sunday, October 19th.
