With guidance from Ogichidaa Onaakonigewin, the Elders Advisory Council, we have embarked on the second of our Walking with Humility plans entitled Looking to the Southern Direction. Over the two years of the plan, Looking to the Southern Direction focuses on ensuring clients receive safe and culturally sensitive care and will support our staff, physicians and volunteers to work in the spirit of reconciliation, upholding the rights of Indigenous Peoples in an environment that is free from racism and discrimination. Our actions will focus on six key areas:

  • Integration of Indigenous Knowledge & Healing Practices
  • Cultural Humility as a Journey
  • Prioritizing Indigenous Health
  • Continued Engagement in Indigenous Research & Evaluation
  • Indigenous Leadership & Governance
  • Communications
  • A Healing Way Forward
