SE First Nations, Inuit and Métis Program

Discover how we’re working together for Indigenous health

Who We Are

We are Indigenous and allies, and we love what we do. We’re working respectfully alongside communities to co-develop/co-design initiatives, health service solutions, education, resources, and tools.

We ensure that health service solutions meet the needs of the community by interweaving cultural safety, Indigenous ways of knowing and evidence-based practice into our processes. Our Indigenous staff have lived and worked in community and have an excellent understanding of communities’ needs and health systems.

Our core values are grounded upon respect, relevance, reciprocity, responsibility, and relationship.


More than 20 years of working together with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis communities to share knowledge and build health and well-being solutions that honour, respect and build upon the sovereignty, strength and determination of communities.


Our education, resources, and tools are developed by health care staff that have lived experiences and are connected to communities, ensuring a deep relevance and understanding of community strengths and needs. Our approach is to ensure meaningful involvement of community-based workers in the co-development/co-design of all our program offerings and initiatives.


We are a social enterprise that is committed to giving back to the communities we serve. Supported by Saint Elizabeth Foundation, we offer more than 18 online professional development courses for community health care providers across Canada, at no cost.


Our education programs, resources and tools are designed to meet the education and training needs of community health care providers in convenient, practical and cost-effective ways. Our customized education and health services design and support initiatives are built using a co-development/co-design approach. It has been recognized as a leading model to support culturally safe care.


We have built trusted relationships with communities and organizations through approaches that build on our shared values. We are proud of SE Health’s long-standing commitment to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities across Canada, which honours, respects and acts upon the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
