The HDRN Canada Leads Team (the "Leads") provides input to the HDRN Canada Executive Committee (the “Executive”) on development and planning priorities.

The Leads team consists of representatives from HDRN Canada's Member Organizations, and serves as a community of practice through which SPOR SUPPORT Unit data centres and other HDRN Canada member organization representatives come together to receive updates and information on HDRN Canada operations to be shared back with each member’s respective entity/organization, and collaborate and problem solve regarding opportunities and risks, including strategic alignment of objectives and research activities between HDRN Canada and the data centres.
