UNBC’s Ninth Canada Research Chair to Study the Relationship Between Water and Health in the North

University of Northern British Columbia – A better understanding of how waterways influence the health of communities, economies, and the world is the focus of the University of Northern British Columbia’s newest Canada Research Chair. Dr. Margot Parkes was recently named Canada Research Chair in Health, Ecosystems, and Society – UNBC’s ninth CRC appointment.

Dr. Parkes comes to northern BC to examine the effect of changing ecosystems on the health and well-being of communities, with a focus on water as a common resource for livelihoods, food security, culture and economies. Her work will bring together organizations, communities and researchers involved in health and water governance in the northern Fraser River Basin, which includes Prince George, Burns Lake, Fort St. James, Fraser Lake, McBride, Valemount, and Vanderhoof.
