Welcome to The Canadian Alliance for Regional Risk Factor Surveillance (CARRFS)

The Canadian Alliance for Regional Risk Factor Surveillance (CARRFS) welcomes you to its website. Our goal is to provide our members across Canada with a platform for interaction and collaboration. We will provide you with information and update on trainings and events. With our Members Portal, which is only for members of CARRFS, we will provide you with specific information about our members and “who is doing what” in regional/local chronic disease risk factor surveillance across Canada. All this is done with the purpose of serving you as a member of CARRFS so you better can help your local community.

Training & Events

The next e-learning session will take place on May 31, 2013 and will look at the question of whether rural residency is a social determinant of health. To register, contact CAARFS!
