About Us

The Western & Northern Health Human Resources Planning Forum, established in 2001, was designed to facilitate the exploration of opportunities for coordinated planning and joint initiatives in the Health Human Resources (HHR) area.

The Forum is a collaboration between the Ministries of Health and the Ministries of Advanced Education in the following provinces and territories:

  • British Columbia
  • Alberta
  • Saskatchewan
  • Manitoba
  • Yukon
  • Northwest Territories
  • Nunavut

While it was initially involved in information exchange, networking and communication in Health Human Resources (HHR), the Forum is currently involved in the implementation of wide-ranging collaborative, multi-jurisdictional projects. The Forum is represented on several national working groups and committees and participates in the organization of bi-annual HHR planning conferences.
