Health care providers can play a critical role in improving the health status of individuals, families, and communities. In the post-Truth and Reconciliation report era, ensuring that these providers are knowledgeable and culturally safe for Indigenous communities across Canada has never been more necessary. One of the missions of the Indigenous Health Conference: Walking Together is to be an avenue to help address the critical shortage of culturally safe health care providers that work with underserviced Indigenous populations. The conference provides an opportunity for learning and growth on Indigenous health issues and cultural safety.
We also work toward this through a job fair. We invite hospitals, health boards, and regional health authorities to participate in the job fair and connect with over 700 learners including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, allied health workers and more. A limited number of tables starting at $2500 tables are available for recruiters to engage health care professionals from across Canada interested in Indigenous health.
At the bronze level, you will be provided with a 6′ table, along with access to the academic sessions for one person. There are other options available. If your organization is interested in participating, please contact Samantha Smith, Lead Planner Conference Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or 416-946-7641.
