2018-2020 Goals

2018-2020 Goals for the Indigenous Health Sub-Committee:

To contribute to improving the health of Indigenous Peoples and reducing Indigenous-settler inequities by:

  1. Nurturing engagement and connection among Indigenous PTs in Canada as a step towards Indigenous leadership within PT in Canada
  2. Supporting non-Indigenous PTs in Canada (i.e. settlers) to mitigate Indigenous-settler inequities through building capacity in:

       a) how to provide culturally safe, humble, and responsive health care

       b) their complicity in the systems of inequality that produce Indigenous-settler health inequities, primarily settler colonialism and racism

  3. Celebrating and showcasing examples of Indigenous-settler collaborations in PT that exemplify solidarity and authentic partnerships
