Gateway Rural Health Research Institute

The Gateway Rural Health Research Institute is the brainchild of a group of residents and healthcare professionals in a rural Ontario community in Huron County who propose to create a centre to research healthcare issues in rural populations, the first community-driven rural research centre in Canada. Most of healthcare-related research conducted in Canada and elsewhere is based on results of surveys taken of test populations close to large urban medical centres of learning or practice, with projections of results for rural sector populations. The research centre to be created will have synergy in its chosen location, Seaforth Ontario, a town in the Municipality of Huron East. More information is available at
