Creating Safe Environments: Community Wellness and Protection

The Community Wellness and Protection (CWP) team walks alongside communities to promote health and wellness in ways that honour Indigenous community resilience, knowledge, and wisdom. We provide learning opportunities that promote wellness and healing, support psychosocial well-being for communities, and provide resources tailored to specific community needs. We work across generations and community structures, including community leadership and service providers to respond to community identified needs while building on community strengths and resources.
