CHILD, YOUTH AND FAMILY HEALTH

The NCCAH is pleased to share the summary report and accompanying DVD from the final national gathering, "Family is the Focus". Taking place on the traditional territories of the Tsleil-Waututh, Squamish and Musqueam Peoples in Vancouver, British Columbia from February 18-20, 2014, participants from across Canada were joined by speakers from New Zealand and the United States. This proceedings report also includes the pull-out poster Commitment to Family which is equipped with a zapcode to view digital images of the participant drawings.

The Sacred Space of Womanhood: Mothering across the Generations was a two day gathering on mothering and womanhood hosted by the National Collaborating Centre for Aboriginal Health (NCCAH) in Ottawa, Ontario, January 24-25th 2012.
How can we support Indigenous men in their journey as fathers? The NCCAH recently staged a national event to find out, as we work to ensure a role for First Nations, Inuit and Métis fathers in communities, programs, research and policies in Canada.
Our “Messages from the Heart: Caring for our Children” video continues to inspire organizations across the country. The film captures journeys to healing and strength as voiced by participants in an NCCAH-hosted national gathering with early childhood educators. The 2009 event helped address the legacy of the residential school system and child welfare policies, and highlighted strategies and programs that work for parents, families and communities.

This resource documents and analyzes Métis narratives on parenting within the context of their unique historical and contemporary experiences.
