Learn what is being done to improve Indigenous health care and programs to support Indigenous health care needs.


Removing barriers faced by Indigenous peoples in accessing health care, and building community-specific capacity to improve the circle of care and health outcomes is our focus.

The Ministry of Health is committed to ensuring that First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples in Alberta have equitable access to high-quality, timely, culturally appropriate, and safe care that is free of Indigenous racism, and that Indigenous patient trust is restored in the Alberta health care system leading to improved Indigenous health outcomes for generations to come.

The Indigenous Health Division is working to develop, leverage, and strengthens relationships with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit partners to ensure Indigenous peoples in Alberta have access to culturally appropriate and safe health care programs, and that each step of the health program, policy, and service planning process includes Indigenous partners perspectives, and reflects patients’ unique health needs.
