Health Promotion With Aboriginal People in Northwestern Ontario
Funder: Ontario Trillium Foundation
Co-Applicant: Dr. Cyndy Baskin
Partnered with Ve'ahavta: The Canadian Jewish Humanitarian Relief Committee
In partnership with a Toronto based Jewish humanitarian focussed organization and a First Nations community in northwestern Ontario, this research project aims to explore the notion of health promotion with Aboriginal peoples, support the community's decisions on the creation of health related services and explore sustainability for such. The team consists of representatives from the First Nations community, this organization and Aboriginal people in Toronto who will conduct the research and advise on these matters. Once this project is completed, other communities across the country, which have already been approached, will be brought in for further research on the topic of health promotion. The national advisory committee is co-chaired by Phil Fontaine and Paul Martin.
