The Path to Reconciliation Annual Progress Report 2020

December 21, 2020

The Path to Reconciliation Annual Progress Report 2020 – An Advisory Committee was established for the development of the draft Indigenous Partnership Strategy Framework (IPSF) that included seventeen Indigenous members with extensive knowledge in the Indigenous health field. The framework was developed to enable culturally relevant and appropriate engagement with First Nations, Métis and Inuit organizations and communities in Manitoba’s Health System Transformation. Four key guiding principles were used:

  • Indigenous History
  • Traditional Knowledge and Wellness
  • Indigenous and Human Rights
  • Systems and Structures

Planning for the implementation of a number of Rapid Access to Addictions Medicine (RAAM) Clinics in locations throughout Manitoba, including one in the north. This new model will serve all Manitobans including Indigenous persons both on and off reserve. Services are to be delivered by the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba, Regional Health Authorities and other regional resources such as Indigenous communities. Developed the Mental Health and Addictions (MHA) Strategy. The mental wellness of Indigenous peoples of Manitoba is one of seven priority areas included in the Virgo report.
