    The NCCDH and Health Promotion Canada (HPC) are collaborating on a series of webinars to highlight several chapters of the newly released book Health Promotion in Canada 4th edition: New Perspectives on Theory, Practice, Policy, and Research. The goal is to explore how various themes in this book apply to public health action on health equity by pairing the authors’ content with practitioner perspective on application to public health practice. 

    This webinar will take place in English.

    Self-determination is considered a determinant of health for Indigenous peoples and communities. Understanding the historical and sociopolitical contexts that influence Indigenous peoples’ health and wellness, including power structures and colonialism, is critical to effective public health strategies to address health equity. 

    This webinar will explore what it means to be an ally at an organizational and systems level for Indigenous peoples and communities. The importance of Indigenous community engagement to the pursuit of health equity will be discussed, stressing the role that all practitioners have to play across geographies. Steps to engage with Indigenous communities in a meaningful way will be explored, including how to develop relationships where none previously existed. Examples of Indigenous community engagement strategies will also be highlighted.
