Each year, the International Association of Public Participation (IAP2) recognizes leaders in the field of public engagement with their IAP2 Core Values Awards. The Council was recently presented the Indigenous Engagement Project Award for our guide, Culturally Safe Engagement: What Matters to Indigenous (First Nations, Métis and Inuit) Patient Partners – find out more about the guide and how it was developed.

Through the two public health emergencies, a heat dome, fires, floods and protests, people working in health care have faced an incredible amount of stress over the past few years. To express our immense appreciation and to honour their experiences, we reached out to hear the stories of those who have been working on the front lines of health care from around the province.
