Health system marking second Indigenous Inclusion Month

Sept. 13, 2022

Visitors to Niagara Health sites across the region will notice signage on the health system’s properties in St. Catharines, Welland and Niagara Falls meant to show support for the Indigenous community.

The signs include a variety of messaging that are geared to mark Niagara Health’s second Indigenous Inclusion Month. The first was marked in 2021.

“The statements on our lawn signs were developed by our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee as part of their planning for Niagara Health’s second annual Indigenous Inclusion Month,” said Fiona Peacefull, vice president, human resources at Niagara Health. “The statements were developed in consultation with Indigenous community partners.”

Peacefull said the signs represent a commitment being made by Niagara Health “to learning about the experiences, rich traditions and teachings of Indigenous Peoples in Canada to support a safe, culturally welcoming space for everyone who enters the hospital.”
