Areas of Work
The Indigenous Health department is organized into five areas of responsibility:
San'yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Learning Programs, which are a collection of education programs that helps increase knowledge, self-awareness and skills around addressing Indigenous-specific racism.
Research and Development, which includes the design, development, revision and/or evaluation of curriculum, tools and assessments, as well as research of racism theory and practices.
Indigenous Cultural Safety & Partnership, which supports PHSA-wide programs and services that address Indigenous-specific racism.
Provincial Indigenous Cultural Safety Programs, which oversee initiatives to address Indigenous-specific racism in collaboration with provincial programs, services and health partners.
Indigenous Youth Wellness Programs, which work with communities to support a variety of wellness programs specifically for youth across BC.
Each area of responsibility is accountable to the Indigenous communities and partners we serve and to our foundational mandates.
