Who We Are?
We envision vibrant communities where:
- All Indigenous people receive friendly, warm care “where they are”:
- Geographically-care that sees no boundaries and is status blind;
- Emotionally- Care that is provided in a safe place defined by the client;
- Culturally- Care that respects wherever clients are in their spiritual journey and cultural identity;
- Physically- Care that treats all medical needs and addresses complexity of care.
- Generosity of time and skills is shared freely.
- Traditional ways of knowing and being are valued and celebrated.

- Equally values traditional healing and clinicalsupports;
- Connects Indigenous people to regional services and professionals whom they cantrust;
- Engages with all Indigenous communities across the region; and
