The Joint Collaborative Committees (JCCs) have prioritized partnering with Indigenous communities and are committed to walking with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples on our collective journey to ensure Indigenous patients have access to culturally safe health care in BC.
In an effort to align with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission, and British Columbia’s In Plain Sight Report, we ground our journey in the meaningful relationships with continue to build with Indigenous communities, Elders and Knowledge Keepers, the Ministry of Health, and the First Nation Health Authority and BC’s other health authorities.
There is no simple fix for the systemic racism that exists in health care but we are committed to adopting a process of constant learning, educating, and evolving.
