Metis Centre of the NAHO26 Sep, 2009 | Posted by: june

The Métis Centre is a Métis-controlled centre of the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO). The Métis Centre is dedicated to improving the mental, physical, spiritual, emotional and social health of all Métis in Canada. We are a centre devoted to promoting Métis health issues through public education and health promotion.

Through the advancement and sharing of health information, the Métis Centre is working to:

* Improve the knowledge base in Métis health.
* Promote Métis health issues at the national and provincial levels.
* Facilitate community-based health research.
* Support capacity building in Métis communities.

The Métis Centre also believes that the key to community wellness lies in the transmission of traditional knowledge and healing practices. Affirming and protecting traditional knowledge, as a means to enhancing the health and well-being of Métis, is a primary goal of the Métis Centre.
