In efforts to explore the full effects of cancer on the Métis community, we have partnered with the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC), CANHelp Working Group at the University of Alberta, Alberta Health Analytics and Reporting Branch, St. Elizabeth Health, and Cancer Control Alberta to develop and deliver culturally meaningful cancer resources and our Alberta Métis Cancer Strategy (AMCS).

Our strategy will be informed by qualitative data from engagements with Métis Albertans and their caregivers, focusing on their cancer journeys. It will also include epidemiological data, a literature review, and an environmental scan. The AMCS is intended to outline our future actions and provide recommendations for Cancer Control Alberta (CCA) to include in its Alberta Indigenous Cancer Action Plan.

The key goals of this project are to:

Our AMCS will be used to inform future cancer supports and services delivered through the Department of Health.

This project is funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC).
