This review has been completed in support of a larger feasibility and planning exercise to implement technology-enabled Hubs in remote communities. The overall aim of the lager project is to identify a pilot-ready opportunity for information and communication technologies (ICT) to enable application of collaborative risk-driven intervention (CRDI) in remote Saskatchewan communities. Driving the larger project that this review aims to support, are four main objectives: 1) Develop understanding for how the Hub model can be applied in remote communities by intersecting collaborative risk-driven intervention with advanced information and communication technologies. 2) Develop a body of knowledge on information and communication technologies that have enabled similar collaborative interactions in Canada and beyond. 3) Determine how a virtual environment for cross-sector collaborative risk-driven intervention can occur in Saskatchewan. 4) Provide a go-forward plan for community safety and well-being stakeholders to consider in piloting a technology-enabled Hub for remote communities. Reviewing what has been learned and experienced in other fields and jurisdictions will help provide a solid foundation for this project’s development and implementation. As community consultations and expert opinions are sought over the coming months, additional literature and supportive documents may be revealed. As such, this current literature review will remain a work in progress until the final
