The Aboriginal Friendship Centres of Saskatchewan (AFCS) have heard from communities that creating a stronger relationship with the healthcare field was integral to ensuring that all cultures and specifically Indigenous community members receive high quality health services. The ultimate goal is to bridge the gap between the Indigenous community and the health care field.

AFCS modeled its training after the highly successful St. Johns First Light Friendship Centre training and amended it to be Saskatchewan specific.

This project aims to implement a three hour half day training course for health services providers in Saskatchewan, to ensure all cultures and specifically Indigenous community members receive high quality health services. The current relationship is strained, with many health care facilities generally viewed as culturally unsafe.

Our goals include that initially, health system partners will have increased capacity to create culturally safe and inclusive health services for racialized and marginalized communities. Then, health system partners will apply this knowledge to create culturally safe and inclusive health services. Finally, health system partners will provide inclusive and culturally safe health services for racialized and marginalized communities.
