Rural Road Map: Report Card on Access to Health Care in Rural Canada

April 2021

Since its formation in 2018, the Rural Road Map Implementation Committee (RRMIC) has made important contributions to enhancing access to care for people living in rural and remote areas of Canada.  Our work is based on the four priority areas identified in the Rural Road Map for Action—social accountability, policy interventions, best practice models, and rural research.  In this report card we highlight key activities that RRMIC’s partner and stakeholder organizations have undertaken that advance these priorities. We provide an overall assessment of progress made on the 20 actions that form the framework of the Rural Road Map. In 2021 we are exploring what comes next in our drive to ensure everyone in Canada has access to the care they need close to home.

(SRPC) and the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) are addressing this issue in a new consensus paper that highlights the need for more efficient patient transfers to and from hospitals and other medical facilities for people in rural and remote communities, including those living in Indigenous communities.
