NEW fact sheet series on northern mobility and migration issues being released this week!

February 22, 2016

We’ve learned the North can present many challenges to women – so why do they stay? Why do women move to the North and between northern communities? FemNorthNet’s interviews with northern women and a review of existing studies on these very questions revealed some complex answers, which are explored in the following themed fact sheets:   

  • Fly-in and Fly-out Communities in Northern Canada
  • Housing Market Fluctuations in Resource Based Towns
  • Domestic Violence & Violence Against Women in the North
  • Support Systems in Resource-based Towns for an Ageing Population
  • Resource-based Town Resilience: Strengthening Communities through Long-Term Investment

The fact sheets will be released February 22 through to February 26 and available on our Migration, Immigration & Mobility theme page.
