WELCOME TO THE NCCAH

The National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) is a national Aboriginal organization established in 2005 by the Government of Canada and funded through the Public Health Agency of Canada to support First Nations, Inuit, and Métis public health renewal and health equity through knowledge translation and exchange. The NCCAH is hosted by the University of Northern BC (UNBC) in Prince George, BC. Learn more.  

HIGHLIGHTS & UPDATES
This report summarizes current knowledge about the nutritional health of First Nations and Métis people in the NWT and identifies research gaps. Despite comprising the majority of the Aboriginal population in the NWT, First Nations and Métis have been overlooked in research related to diet, nutrition, and their association with health and well-being. 

The National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) is pleased to present Landscapes of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Health: An Environmental Scan of Organizations, Literature and Research, 3rd Edition.  Similar to previous environmental scans produced by the NCCAH in 2006 and 2010, this publication sets out to review the current knowledge production on First Nations, Inuit, and Métis health and health priorities in Canada. 

New curriculum to support paediatric residents in the care of Aboriginal children was launched in 2011 at universities across Canada. Developed by the Canadian Paediatric Society with the support of the NCCAH and nearly a dozen national organizations in the Many Hands, One Dream partnership, the curriculum provides not only medical information but also historical context in the care of Aboriginal children and youth.
This series of three fact sheets focuses on racism experienced by Aboriginal peoples in Canada – how to understand it in historical context, how it affects individuals and communities, and what programs, policies and strategies exist to combat it.
This discussion paper is the first in a series of three focused on Indigenous knowledge synthesis, translation, and exchange (KSTE) aimed at improving the health of Indigenous people in Canada. It provides an overview of KSTE in public health, evidence-informed public health, types of evidence reviews, implementation science, Indigenous knowledge as “evidence,” research ethics and participatory KSTE, and Indigenous KSTE systems.
