Ehawawisit (With Child)

The Ehawawisit (With Child): Maternal and Perinatal Health Outcomes Among the Métis in Alberta and the Influence of Proximal, Intermediate, and Distal Determinants of Health research project was developed in partnership with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta, and McMaster University.

Through an epidemiological analysis of administrative health data, we saw where Métis women and babies experienced different health outcomes compared to non-Métis women and babies. The Ehawawisit project activities were completed in April 2021 and the findings were compiled into three reports.

Lii Zaanfaan (The Children)

Started in April 2020, the Lii Zaanfaan (The Children): Understanding the Health and Well-being Trajectories of Métis Children in Alberta. The project will deepen our understanding of Métis health and build on knowledge from the maternal and perinatal health research. This project will explore how intergenerational trauma and maternal and perinatal health impact the health and well-being of Métis children.

This project is funded by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.
