Community Health


The Community Health Program aims to improve the holistic health of First Nations people and support healthier communities through effective and efficient delivery of programs and services while working collaboratively to enhance community capacity.

The core values are client service excellence, holistic caring, primary health care, community participation, empowerment, and health. Health is viewed as a dynamic physical, mental, spiritual, and social well-being process.

Health includes self-determination, the realization of hopes and needs, and a sense of connection to the community. Health is considered a resource of everyday life influenced by circumstances, beliefs, and health determinants.

The Community Health Program offers:
