ABL



We are committed to partnering with Aboriginal people and towards building a health system that honors diversity and provides services in a culturally relevant manner.

 

The area served by Northern Health lies roughly between 53 and 60 degrees north latitude and accounts for two-thirds of the land area of British Columbia. Across this vast landscape there is an unparalleled diversity of Aboriginal peoples and perspectives.

 

The purpose of this page is to encourage an appreciation for this amazing diversity.

 

Please visit the Northern Health Aboriginal Health Department.
