AHS launching Indigenous healthcare support line – CFWE

May 19th, 2022

The new addition to Alberta’s healthcare system is designed to provide Indigenous people with culturally appropriate care and improve health outcomes.

Indigenous residents in Northern Alberta are set to receive a dedicated support line to improve accessibility within the provincial healthcare system.

On May 30, the line will be deployed in phases starting with northwest Indigenous communities. Afterward, new areas will be added to the service each week for six weeks.

The line will be staffed with Indigenous people working with Health Link, and will be available between noon and 8 p.m. each day.
