Research summary

Dr. Chartier is an applied population health scientist who uses administrative data to conduct health outcomes research.

She also leads developmental program evaluations using qualitative and survey methodology to understand what is working in improving health outcomes and for whom it is working.

She was the co-Principal Investigator on the Methamphetamine Use in Manitoba report.

She recently led provincial reports on the Mental Health of Children in Manitoba, Mental Illness Among Adult Manitobans and the Health and Well-Being of First Nations Children.

With Swampy Cree Tribal Council community members and First Nations organizations, Dr. Chartier is currently leading a Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) funded study of the implementation and effectiveness PAX, a school-based mental health promotion approach, among First Nations youth.


Dr. Chartier is a senior research scientist at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy and an assistant professor of community health sciences at the University of Manitoba. Her career began as a registered nurse in the areas of medical, surgical and psychiatric nursing. After a decade of bedside nursing, she joined the Anxiety Disorders Research Team at St. Boniface General Hospital where she coordinated research in pharmacological and psychological interventions for people living with anxiety disorders.

During her graduate studies in community health sciences, she developed an interest and expertise in population health and intervention research, specifically in understanding which policies and practices benefited the well-being of children in Manitoba. She was contracted by Health Child Manitoba Office to lead large-scale program evaluations in the area of child care and early childhood development. Currently, Dr. Chartier has continued this work and expanded her research interests as part of the research team at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy.
