New funding in support of NCCIH’s cultural safety resource collection

Press Release

The National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health (NCCIH) is pleased to announce that it will be receiving a total of $1,07 million in new public funding from Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) and the B.C. government to grow the first-ever collection of cultural safety and Indigenous-specific anti-racism tools and resources.

The NCCIH Cultural Safety Collection is an online library that includes videos, communication tools, research papers, training materials and educational platforms. These resources are intended to be of use to broad audiences, including health practitioners, health administrators and decision makers.

“This project will go a long way toward addressing the issue of Indigenous-specific racism in our health system, but can also serve as an important model and training opportunity for the rest of Canada” says B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix.

For his part, federal Minister of Indigenous Services Marc Miller congratulated the NCCIH for its leadership in creating this “much-needed” repository, adding that “First Nations, Inuit, and Métis have the right to be served by a first-class health-care system without fear of discrimination or racism, no matter where they live.”

The Cultural Safety Collection is one of several collections in NCCIH’s Resource Library. All collections are searchable by health topic, subject or keyword, publication type, and year published, and contain resources related specifically to the health of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis populations in Canada.
