About the Network
The Wabanaki-Labrador Indigenous Health Research Network is a dynamic, diverse, interdisciplinary, and inclusive collaboration of Mi’kmaq, Wolastoqiyik, Inuit, Innu, and Passamaquoddy community members, organizations, health professionals, students, academics, traditional healers and allies from the four provinces of Atlantic Canada – Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick.
With the leadership of Indigenous communities, our vision is to improve the health and wellbeing of Indigenous peoples within the Atlantic region using evidence-informed solutions that address community-identified priorities.
1. Enhance capacity for undertaking meaningful, relevant and respectful Indigenous health research in the region;
2. Support communities to address their health research priorities through top-tier research and research capacity-building;
3. Shift the balance of power in the research relationship from academic institutions to Indigenous communities in the region; and
4. Share the experiences of the network widely and foster its sustainability.
This is where we will share the various research initiatives undertaken within the Network.
