The CanTravNet Steering Committee is composed of a Project Director, a Co-director for Epidemic Intelligence and Surveillance, a Co-director for the Network Members Program, the GeoSentinel Project Director (or delegate), and a representative of the Public Health Agency of Canada. The data collection platform and infrastructure are provided by the GeoSentinel Network. Specific deliverables are defined under agreement with PHAC annually. PHAC provides funding, which allows for the operation of CanTravNet. CanTravNet also provides data from the network database and results of network member surveys to PHAC as needed.
An annual meeting will be planned, usually in collaboration with the annual meeting of GeoSentinel members. Other face-to-face or teleconference meetings are arranged on an ad hoc basis. The purpose of the meeting is to support networking activities, and to allow the exchange of information and opinions with experts both within and outside the network.
