CancerCare Manitoba (CCMB), in collaboration with First Nation, Métis, and Inuit partners, has developed a groundbreaking website to assist health care professionals in creating safer and more comprehensive care plans for patients returning to their communities. The Indigenous Community Profiles website serves as a valuable resource, offering geographical and travel information, as well as details on health care and community resources in Indigenous communities.

Dr. Sri Navaratnam, President and CEO, expressed the need for improved access to information about Indigenous community resources after consulting with Indigenous stakeholders. “The Indigenous Community Profiles project reinforces our commitment to promoting culturally appropriate care closer to home and ensuring equitable access to cancer services,” she said.

CancerCare Manitoba serves Indigenous patients across Manitoba and the Kivalliq region of Nunavut. CCMB worked with First Nation, Métis and Inuit partners to design and gather community information for the website profiles. CCMB is proud to recognize our partners who contributed to the Community Profiles including Southern Chiefs Organization, Manitoba Métis Federation, Four Arrows Regional Health Authority, and the Government of Nunavut. CCMB thanks the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer for its generous support as the project funder.

The new website contains Community Profiles for First Nations and Métis communities in Manitoba, and Inuit communities in Sanikiluaq and the Kivalliq region of Nunavut. Each community profile includes important community characteristics and resources available in a community, as well as geographical information about where the community is located.
