Report Considerations
  • Inuit population in Ontario does not provide
    sufficient information to be included in this
    summary
  • Métis - share similar socio-economic and health
    profile as other Aboriginal peoples. There has
    not been a comprehensive health study for the
    Métis People.

19
Aboriginal Health Status
  • Factors contributing to ill health of Aboriginal
    peoples stem not from bio-medical factors, but
    from social economic and political factors
  • RCAP

Aboriginal Health Key Highlight

    ., undertake a systematic examination to
    determine how they can encourage and support
    development of Aboriginal health improve
    appropriateness and effectiveness of mainstream
    services to Aboriginal peoples and engage
    Aboriginal communities in such an examination
  • RCAP

32
Aboriginal Health Promotions
  • Is there even an interest in the Aboriginal
    community for support by Ontario Public Health?

33
Building a Supportive Aboriginal Network
  • It is a great deal easier to reject the ideas
    and aspirations of people (agencies) with whom we
    have never shaken hands, with whom we have never
    laughed together over a joke, or with whom we
    have never sat down to a shared meal.
