Join us to learn about the changing landscape of First Nations health governance and delivery in British Columbia. This webinar will focus on the innovative work and collaborative partnerships in the northern region.
Statistically significant health inequities exist for First Nations people in BC and across Canada. In 2005, BC First Nations, the Province of BC, and the Government of Canada all agreed that these inequities must be addressed. A New Relationship between these Tripartite Partners was forged and a series of precedent-setting agreements led to the creation of the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA). In the north, the Northern Partnership Accord opened new doors for cooperation and planning. A committee was formed to implement the Accord and a plan was drafted and approved in the spring of 2014.
Learn how Northern Health, the FNHA, and northern First Nations are working together to improve health outcomes for northern First Nations people and communities.
