    This video highlights community health nurses’ reflections upon thirty years of Primary Health Care in Canada. The narratives confirm that community health nurses (CHNs) support the values and principles of PHC and share an ongoing commitment to struggle for the full implementation of PHC within Canada. Community health nurses, academics, and administrators/physicians interviewed in the video reflect upon local and global PHC challenges and best practices. The Canadian PHC experience is compared with several international experiences including the Brazilian experience. This is an ideal teaching tool to support undergraduate/graduate students, practitioners, and faculty members as they learn about PHC in Canada within a global context.
