Message from the Chair

Dr. Michael Kidd, Chair 

The recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action (TRC-CTA) around health and primary care are clear: we must work to eliminate the significant disparities in health outcomes faced by Indigenous People in Canada. The TRC-CTA also encourages cultural competency training for all health care professionals, and for medical schools in Canada to teach about the root causes of inequities in health and human rights.
