Re:                         COVID19 Weekly Publication – Edition #3

COVID-19 has increasingly become the most critical health emergency for First Nations in modern time. In this edition, we are reporting that there are increased infections in our communities, across certain regions in the country, with one recent fatality.

The current pandemic plans in First Nations are in large part developed, although there appear to be several dozen in Ontario alone with no plans at the present. Communities have either government-templated plans or plans being developed by the First Nation and their health teams.

“Stay at home.” We are all in this together.  Everyone must stay informed in order stay safe.  That remains our central goal and commitment as we expedite this publication.

We look forward to your feedback, ideas, and shared information that we can help send across to First Nations across Turtle Island.

We are working with various partners to ensure that the information being conveyed is in support of First Nations as they activate Pandemic Plans and work toward reconstituting First Nation communities once the transmission of COVID19 is no longer a threat to human health.

Implementing strategies, business continuity, and re-focusing efforts to meet the needs of our local First Nation communities is the focus of our efforts. We look forward to this publication evolving based on your specific approaches and will open up dialogue in next week’s issue.

Please contact us at / 1-705-987-2505. Working together, we can, and will make it through this and be stronger as Indigenous People, families, communities, and Nations.
