Lack of transportation is a significant issue in all rural and remote communities in Ontario which affects most of the determinants of health. The Ontario Healthy Communities Coalition (OHCC) and the Rural Ontario Institute (ROI) are collaborating to enhance and strengthen the sharing of knowledge of effective models and emerging innovation in rural regional transportation. There are three main elements of the project:
- Identifying and documenting case studies of effective rural regional transportation approaches in Ontario.
- A study of the current and potential business models and financing sources for cost-shared rural transportation systems.
- Communication and dialogue to share the above resources at events and through learning channels such as webinars and forums being organized by partners.
