The Centre for Health Leadership and Research (CHLR) was established in 2006 to explore challenges and opportunities associated with health system leadership, particularly in Canada. Over the years, the CHLR has developed collaborative relationships with a variety of regional and national organizations, and conducted numerous health leadership research projects. Our focus is on collaborative, applied research that will make a difference to patient’s experience of healthcare, by addressing leadership at all levels of healthcare organizations, as well as from people with lived experience.
The current Director, Dr Elizabeth Hartney, was appointed in March 2016. To contact Dr. Hartney please email or phone (250) 391 2600 ext 4277.
