Indigenous Health Program

The Indigenous Health Program (IHP) delivers health services for First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples in Alberta. The IHP works with Indigenous peoples, communities and other partners, to provide services to Indigenous patients that honour their culture, beliefs, and identity.

Our work is guided by five important areas:

  • Caring for our patients with respect and dignity
  • Improving access to health services
  • Treating people as unique individuals
  • Managing addictions and mental health
  • Staying up to date on the health of Indigenous Albertans

We do this by connecting with Indigenous communities, leaders, decision-makers, and most importantly, our patients. In addition, we are guided by the advice of our Wisdom Council, a group of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Albertans who first came together in September of 2012. Their goal is to help ensure that all Indigenous Albertans receive the best possible health care.
