This past week in Ottawa our Métis Nation Saskatchewan Minister of Health Marg Friesen, Minister of Education Earl Cook, Sr. Director of Policy & Research Dorothy Myo and MACSI Director Raymond Laliberte took part in a National Health Forum.

They participated in discussions related to:

– Metis Nation Rights, Relationship Building and Reconciliation

– Understanding & Advancing Métis Nation Health Priorities

– Helping Our Most Vulnerable Citizens

– Addressing Mental Health & Addictions

– Developing Metis Nation Health Data Systems

– Tackling Metis Nation Health Determinants

– Collaborating for Success

The week was about highlighting non-existent health services in our Metis communities and creating a plan to tackle moving forward. We look forward to engaging with our Métis citizens in the months ahead.
