Hot Topics

The CommunityView Hot Topics is a forum in which to provide you with prepared information and data packages on issues or themes of high importance within the CommunityView CollaborationTM.

Each CommunityView Hot Topic may contain background information on the issue, collaborators/ partners involved within particular initiatives, charts, maps, summary tables, analysis and interpretation, research, policy implications and recommendations, reports and documents, references, service providers and external links.

The development of a CommunityView Hot Topic is collaborative work and will often, depending on the issue, involve cross-sector participation. It is envisioned that various partners, organizations and researchers will participate in the identification and development of the CommunityView Hot Topics.

Stay tuned for the upcoming CommunityView Hot Topics:

  • Injuries from Seniors Falls
  • Diabetes
  • Food Security
  • Infant Health
  • Food Access in Saskatoon

Saskatoon Population Growth:

Saskatoon is in the midst of its 4th significant population growth period since 1901.

The City of Saskatoon's population is projected to rise by between 30,000 and 85,000 over the next 15 years.

International migration is a key driver of Saskatoon's recent population growth.

Immunization:

Immunization is the most effective way to prevent infectious disease.

Worldwide, child immunization coverage is a recognized indicator of population health and health system performance.

In Canada most jurisdictions are far from the national immunization goals and targets.

Within Saskatoon Health Region there are disparities in immunization coverage rates between rural and urban areas and from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.
