As part of one of our CIHR-funded studies, we are producing an educational documentary about transfer of Indigenous knowledge between Anishinabe Elders and youth on the North shore of Lake Superior. We are working with Indigenous film-maker, James Fortier to carry out this work. Stay tuned!

Health Centres

In addressing the health and social inequalities of Indigenous peoples, there is great need for health and socio-economic related information. We are currently working with the following Aboriginal health centres (both located in Ontario, Canada) to explore and document the health and socio-economic challenges they see as important among their clientele, including food insecurity, social support and educational outcomes. Ultimately, we collaborate with these health centres in the spirit of improving health information that will better enable them to improve upon these social determinants of health.
