Building Bridges

Indigenous Cultural Safety in Health Care Programs

This guide is part of a project of the 9 English School Boards of Quebec  (PROCEDE) towards their educational responsibility in the process of  Reconciliation. The aim is in response to the recommendations by the Truth &  Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action and the Quebec Viens Report to  ensure a culturally safe environment for Indigenous Peoples and equipping  future health sector graduates with the tools and awareness to contribute to a  more inclusive environment and welcoming diversity. This project has been fully funded by the Directors’ General of the 9 School boards.

This series of learning experiences is organized into three sections that can be  woven into the programs. The pedagogical approach of the activities can suit any teaching situation, such as individual journaling or discussion in small or large groups.
