Since its establishment in 1993, the Atlantic Health Promotion Research Centre (AHPRC) at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, has developed and managed many large social science research programs and provided research training opportunities for students and new researchers. The Centre’s research associates and staff have extensive expertise in population health and prevention research and knowledge translation.
Employment-related geographical mobility was identified as an important issue requiring further study during the AHPRC Atlantic Networks for Prevention Research program (2006-2011). As a research institute based in a region where many workers are on the move, the AHPRC is very interested in the consequences of work-related mobility for employers, workers and their families, and the implications for home and host communities and government. Dr. Lois Jackson, AHPRC’s Scientific Director, is a co-investigator with the On the Move Partnership and co-lead of the Nova Scotia field research team.
