Cultural safety is an important topic in First Nations, Inuit, and Métis public health these days, and for good reason. People who experience culturally safe health care are more likely to access care earlier, and to feel more at ease and empowered throughout the process of  receiving care. Here we introduce two NCCAH resources on cultural safety: one specific to Métis, the other a scan of cultural competency and safety in education, training and health service.
This fact sheet series reflects the latest research and provides the most current information and resources related to four interrelated pillars of health – nutrition, tobacco cessation, healthy choices in pregnancy, and physical activity – which are key risk factors to the most common chronic diseases facing First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples across Canada.
What constitutes valid or credible research? This systematic review supports ongoing work to forge new directions in research based on engagement, justice, fairness and empowerment, and to ensure that there are equal opportunities and recognition of Aboriginal research.
This fact sheet provides a snapshot of Métis women’s disease and mortality data that was collected in the 2006 Aboriginal Peoples Survey.
Inuit health in Canada faces unique challenges.  A report released December 2011 synthesizes current knowledge and identifies trends and gaps for the four northern Inuit regions as well as key southern Canadian cities.
