Interior Health and Ktunaxa Nation Renew Partnership Accord – Summit 107 FM

June 7th, 2019

The new accord endorses the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, among other initiatives.

The seven interior Nations and Interior Health (IH) have renewed their commitment to work together to improve Aboriginal health outcomes and to ensure cultural safety across the health system. The Partnership Accord, originally signed in 2012, was re-signed Wednesday and extended through 2024.

Leaders from the Nlaka’pamux, Dãkelh Dené, Secwepemc, Tsilhqot’in, St’at’imc, Ktunaxa, and Syilx Nations were joined by Interior Health’s Board Chair and President & CEO for the signing ceremony.

“This is an important milestone on a long journey to culturally safe and equitable health care for our people,” says Charlene Belleau, Secwepemc Nation Representative and Partnership Accord Leadership Table (PALT) Co-chair. “Our growing partnership with Interior Health is a key part of this process.”
