Digital Overdose Response System (Dors)
DORS is a mobile app designed to help Albertans using opioids and other substances while alone. Through the app, Albertans will receive a call from the STARS emergency centre if they do not respond to a timer. If an overdose is suspected, STARS will immediately dispatch emergency medical services to the person’s location.
Alberta Indigenous Virtual Care Clinic (Aivcc)
The AIVCC virtually connects Métis Albertans with family doctors who are experienced with providing Indigenous and culturally safe health care. All appointments happen by phone or Zoom video conferencing.
Indian Residential School Survivors Society and Hotline
The legacy of the Residential School system runs deep in our community. We mourn the loss of children who never came home while we try to rebuild the lives impacted by the colonial institution. If you need support, the Indian Residential School Survivor Society has a hotline in place to help you move forward.
Hope For Wellness Helpline
Sometimes having an ear to listen to us can make all the difference in getting through a tough moment. The Hope for Wellness Helpline offers immediate mental health counselling and crisis intervention to Indigenous peoples across Canada. Experienced and culturally-aware counsellors are available 24/7 who offer counselling in English, French, Cree, Ojibway, and Inuktitut.
Missing And Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIWG) Support
It is a terrible truth that Indigenous women and girls are far more likely to be murdered or go missing than non-Indigenous women and girls. If you are a survivor or are missing a loved one, there are resources in place to support you during these difficult times. The National Inquiry to MMIW has a support line for survivors as well as those missing a loved one. This line is an independent, national, toll-free support call line and is available 24/7 to provide support for anyone who requires assistance.
