Addressing Indigenous-specific Racism and Discrimination in B.C. Health Care

“Métis Nation British Columbia was pleased to work with the Review Team on this report addressing racism in B.C.’s health care system. The Métis Nation needs to be recognized as a distinct people making up one-third of the Indigenous population in B.C. The mental health and wellness for Métis people is enhanced when they see the word Métis intentionally and authentically used. By working with MNBC, our Citizens see themselves included in provincial and regional policy, planning and strategies.We are seeing some early progress in starting to have Leadership meetings with health authorities but have very little human resource capacity to respond at the level we need to for our people. We will need to ensure the Métis Nation is engaged and resourced to participate at the appropriate tables to address the health disparities and gaps we face moving forward.”
