This report is on the CARS for Women and Children in Rural, Remote, Northern and Aboriginal Communities (RRNA) project designed to increase the participation of mothers in the development and delivery of local services in RRNA communities across Canada. The project model involved training women, primarily young mothers, from two communities in every province and territory to use a pre-tested community development process called CARS (Communities Achieving Responsive Services).
