  1. * While Central East and Northwest jurisdictions represent an urban/rural mix, all women, except for two (2), were living in an urban area at the time of interviews. Importantly, these participants’ accounts reflected a relatively transient life, and some women described living in rural/remote areas (i.e., fly-in, on-Reserve communities) at different stages of their lives.
