Supporting Indigenous Communities Public Health Needs and Preparedness

The federal government is providing $100 million to support a range of federal health measures, including support for preparedness in First Nation and Inuit communities. These funds will:

  • respond to identified needs to update and activate pandemic plans
  • support an effective allocation of public health and primary health care capacity to respond to the COIVD-19 outbreak
  • align response efforts with scientific evidence as determined by a medical officer of health
  • address immediate needs in the short term
