Navigating the health care system can often be overwhelming, especially if you or someone you know is facing health challenges. The Métis Health Experience Program assists Métis individuals, families, and communities across BC navigate the healthcare feedback process. The program provides a safe space for Métis-led conversations around all types of health experiences and advocates for change, through story sharing and ensuring Métis are being represented in health.
The Métis Health Experience Program offers an alternative for Métis to share their truths outside the system and to be heard and seen by their peers and the system in a uniquely Métis way. We recognize the harms the health feedback process can cause to Métis people, and if you don’t feel comfortable with sharing your story directly to the system that led to those harms, the Métis Health Experience program ensures your voice is heard, respected, and validated. This is your story, and it will only be shared how you wish.
