3.10.69 - “A re-elected Liberal government will […] [b]olster Indigenous health system navigators so they can provide dedicated support to Indigenous people and their families to specifically help them navigate services related to long-term and continuing care.”
“In addition, the government will work with Indigenous partners to provide additional support for Indigenous health priorities: $2 billion over 10 years to address the unique challenges Indigenous Peoples face when it comes to fair and equitable access to quality and culturally safe health care services. […] These investments, on top of already significant funding, will help build a health care system that includes: access to high-quality family health services when they need them, including in rural and remote areas, and for underserved communities; a resilient and supported health care workforce that provides high-quality, effective, and safe health care services; […] access to home care and safe long-term care so Canadians can age safely and live in dignity.”
Working together to improve health care for Canadians - Prime Minister of Canada
“Aboriginal navigators are people of Aboriginal descent who, while not health professionals, are responsible for accompanying people from Aboriginal communities experiencing homelessness. They facilitate their access to care by helping them navigate the complexity of the system to ensure quality care.” (Traduction)
