Welcome to the Métis Nation of Alberta (MNA) Department of Health webpage!

Our team is dedicated to identifying and sharing the unique health experiences of Métis Albertans through our advocacy efforts and policy, program, and service development, focusing on our community’s strength and resiliency. Our work recognizes key concepts of cultural safety and the traumas associated with historic and ongoing colonialization. We strive to ensure the voice of Métis Albertans is present in all MNA health-related initiatives.

The Department of Health is structured around two core pillars:

Through these core pillars, we provide opportunities that integrate the needs, values, and beliefs of Métis Albertans into our research, education, policies, and programs. We apply Métis knowledge to our approaches and define health, well-being, and success based on community definitions.
