Engaging First Nation, Inuit and Métis Communities
The 14 Local Health Integration Networks (LHINs) work in partnership with local First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities to facilitate engagement with the health care system. The goal is to advance culturally-appropriate services which contributes to better patient experiences, enhanced quality of care and improvements in health outcomes for Aboriginal peoples in Ontario.
Each LHIN develops direct relationships with Aboriginal and First Nation communities to:
Build a knowledge-base that includes better data, traditional approaches to healing and wellness, values, principles and priorities of Aboriginal peoples and their families
