High-Quality Health Care

We will ensure that Indigenous Peoples have access to the high-quality, culturally relevant health care and mental health services they need.

In a country as prosperous as Canada, no one should go without the care they need to stay healthy. Indigenous Peoples have the right to high-quality care that reflects distinctions-based needs, and that makes things like mental health, healing, assisted living and long-term care, and preventative care a priority, available when and where it is needed.

To move forward with making high-quality health care a reality for all Indigenous Peoples, we will co-develop distinctions-based Indigenous Health legislation – backed with the investments needed to deliver this care – and will continue to work with Indigenous communities to ensure Indigenous control over the development and delivery of services.
