Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle

Making a difference
one community at a time



The Indigenous Health Circle in partnership with the Waypoint Research Institute was successful in securing a 100,000 Research Grant from the Canadian Institute of Health Research to promote research practices within the Indigenous community, with the goal of researching what factors need to be in place to create cultural safety in hospitals and institutions.

The IHC considers this a valuable partnership, in recognition of the need for establishing best practices, practice wisdom, and evidence-based practice in the design and delivery of Indigenous health services
