The First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) is engaged in a collaborative project with Simon Fraser University (SFU) which will help identify ecological indicators that are based in the 7 Directives and examine how those indicators contribute to Indigenous-led Health Impact Assessments.

Called Healing Indicators: Research in Indigenous health impact assessment and self-determination, the project has two main goals. The first is to help build and develop next steps for an ecological indicator to meet the needs set out in the First Nations Population Health and Wellness Agenda.
