NOTE: The funds provided through the Aboriginal Healing and Wellness Strategy are intended to provide an Aboriginal Health Advocacy Developers initiative. The purpose of the Health Advocate initiative is to address issues and concerns with regard to the equitable access to and quality of health services for Aboriginal, First Nations and Metis people throughout the province of Ontario. The Aboriginal Health Advocacy Developers focus on facilitating awareness, training and education of Aboriginal health service providers, front-line workers and organization representatives about various systems, protocols and approaches for dealing with various barriers to access to health services. The Initiative does not provide direct advocacy services. It is anticipated that Aboriginal cultural approaches will be reflected or used as a part of the activities and services proposed.
Unity is the common theme for this year's race relations week long event starting March 20th.
