Aboriginal Health & Wellness

 

Aboriginal people in Canada experience unique challenges, which impacts access to health services, health outcomes and overall health status. There is a strong need to address the inequities and support Aboriginal people in their concerted efforts to positively influence their health and well being. It is imperative to understand the complexities within the population and celebrate the uniqueness of each individual community and person.


Promoting physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being while addressing health and social determinants necessitates relationship building, respect for culture, and Aboriginal leadership engagement. Building capacity within communities utilizing a collaborative, community-driven approach will facilitate meaningful and culturally appropriate desired outcomes.


There are numerous successful Aboriginal Health initiatives across the country. The opportunity to support Aboriginal people in their goal of realizing and sustaining optimal health & wellness is an immense opportunity.
