Bruce Power Commits $250,000 to Rural Health


Gateway Centre of Excellence in Rural Health (CERH) is ecstatic to announce that Bruce Power is providing $250,000 worth of funding over a five-year period to Gateway CERH. The Funding will be used to build strong communities by promoting the health and well-being of rural residents in Bruce, Huron, Perth and Grey Counties.  Bruce Power is a privately-owned nuclear generating station located in Bruce County, and produces 30% of Ontario's power. Some top priorities of Bruce Power include safety in the workplace, strong communities and the creation of innovative medical technologies such as medical isotopes.

 

Rural communities face unique challenges in accessing and distributing wellness and healthcare resources. With the support of Bruce Power, Gateway CERH is working to directly provide resources and health services to strengthen our rural communities. A few projects that fall under this scope include mental health first aid, rural educational health lecture series, support for farmers, students and healthcare workers, and health screening for volunteer firefighters.
