CAMH is pleased to announce that its Reconciliation Working Group (RWG), was recently awarded a Leading Practice by Accreditation Canada and the Health Standards Organization for their exciting and innovative work.
a 31-member committee comprised of Indigenous and non-Indigenous clinical and non-clinical staff members at CAMH tasked with reconciliation for transformational systems-change. The RWG is a direct response to Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s (TRC) Calls to Action, particularly numbers 18–24 specific to health care. They tackle anti-Indigenous racism and its effects on staff members, patients and families.
The RWG is housed within Shkaabe Makwa, a Centre designed to drive culturally relevant systems initiatives to achieve health equity and community wellness.
