On the Move - How and Why We Travel for Work
We know that people in this region often work in one place but live in another.
People on the Alberta "turn-around," flying in and out every few weeks is the obvious example.
There are also truckers, construction workers, military personnel, fishermen, nurses...the list goes on and on.
But even though more Canadians than ever seem to be on the move for their jobs, there's almost no information about who they are, or what effect this mobility is having on our communities and our economy.
The On the Move Partnerhip is a seven year, multi-million dollar, multi-province research project that's trying to answer some of those questions.
