Siksika Health Services recognizes the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination as we commit to work together with partners for the benefit and equitable healthcare of all people.
In February 2021, Siksika Nation and Alberta Health signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together to understand, address, and prevent inequities in health services, policies and programs for Siksika Nation members. This MOU included a commitment to eliminate systemic racism within the healthcare system in Alberta, where it exists, and ensure that Siksika members are provided culturally safe healthcare services.
In August 2021: Siksika Health Services and the Calgary Hitmen signed a historic MOU, agreeing to working together to address stereotypes and racism by advancing inclusion in our communities through the promotion of Indigenous culture, language and history, and promote healthy lifestyles for all youth by highlighting the benefits of participation in sport.
Siksika Health continues to work hard to make sure our people are taken care of, and also to take care of our neighbours.
