Métis Nation Health/Well-Being Research Portal

Welcome from President Chartier

Welcome to the Métis Nation Health Portal. The portal has been established as a comprehensive site on health informaton for the Métis people throughout Canada. The site reflects the holistic understanding of the Métis Nation about what things are important when considering the health and well-being of our people and when designing policies and programs to address our population health needs.

The Portal brings together in one source, information on:
  • the health and well-being status of the Métis population,
  • the broader health determinants that influence health and well-being of the Métis people,
  • Métis Nation demographics which will play a major role in determining the type and amount of resources required to address the health and well-being needs of the Métis Nation , and
  • programs that addresss those needs.

The Portal will ensure that what is known about the health of the Métis population is shared throughout the Métis Nation and with others that are interested in learning about the health and well-being of our people. Equally or more importantly, it will help ensure that others are able to understand and adopt the integrated, holistic view of population health and well-being that prevails among the Métis people.

Although the site will be further developed over a period of years, it now contains the most comprehensive information ever published about Metis health and well-being conditions and the factors that will influence how our population health need will evolve in the future. Over the coming months and years, I invite you to visit the site to check for updates and new research information as we continue to improve our understanding of Métis health and well-being.
