Call for Applicants: HDRN Canada Public Advisory Council (PAC)

Group of people sitting indoors

HDRN Canada is committed to including members of the public in decisions about health data through its Public Advisory Council (PAC). We are currently inviting people to apply to be part of the 12-15 person PAC. Our objective is to establish a council of members with diverse experiences related to geography, age, gender identity, occupation, language, culture, ethnicity and other characteristics.

HDRN Canada is a network of leading federal, provincial and territorial organizations that hold and manage health data. HDRN Canada was created to connect individuals and organizations across the country to increase the ways that health data are used for public benefit, while protecting privacy and ensuring research is aligned with public values and Indigenous data sovereignty.

The PAC will meet at least 5 times per year, with the opportunity to participate in additional work. If selected to be a member of the PAC, your responsibilities would include:

  • Advising HDRN Canada about public perspectives on short-term, medium-term, and long-term priorities
  • Identifying and discussing potential new datasets that, from the perspective of members of the public, may be priorities for HDRN Canada
  • Helping HDRN Canada communicate and engage with members of the public outside of the PAC

The deadline to apply is July 13, 2020. Please contact info@hdrn.ca if you have any questions.
