Fraser Health is committed to working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit across the Fraser Salish region to plan and deliver culturally safe health services. We are thankful to the Honourable Dr. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond (Aki-Kwe) and the almost 9,000 Indigenous Peoples and health care staff and medical staff whose courage to share their stories and experiences helped shape the “In Plain Sight” report and the call to action needed for change. We are committed to working with the Ministry of Health to eliminate systemic racism in the health care sector in our province.
