July 6, 2022 — Prince George, unceded lands of the Lheidli T’enneh people, British Columbia — Indigenous Services Canada

The National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health (NCCIH) and the Health Arts Research Centre (HARC), both housed at the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC), are receiving new funds to support health care professionals to address anti-Indigenous racism, practise in anti-oppressive ways, and foster cultural humility.

The Hearts-based Education and Anticolonial Learning (HEAL) health care project, which is a joint initiative between the NCCIH and HARC, is anchored in training and education focused on health care students and professionals to create better health outcomes for Indigenous people. The two-year project will promote cultural safety and recognize Indigenous knowledge and anti-colonial approaches in health service provision—central to achieving the goal of eliminating anti-Indigenous racism in health systems.

Indigenous Services Canada is proud to support this important project with a $1-million contribution over two years, starting in 2022.

The Government of Canada is committed to continuing to work with provincial and territorial governments, Indigenous partners, and all those who work in health care to increase safety and respect for Indigenous Peoples in Canada’s health systems.
