About the First Nations, Inuit and Métis strategy

First Nations, Inuit and Métis (FN/I/M) cancer control strategy
The First Nations, Inuit and Métis (FN/I/M) cancer control strategy aims to help reduce the cancer burden for FN/I/M communities and improve the experience of patients. Specifically, the Partnership works closely with FN/I/M people, patients, partners, communities and cancer service providers to advance culturally relevant and people specific cancer control initiatives that best reflect their needs and priorities.

Ensuring the patient voice is heard is core to the work that we do. In 2009, a national forum was held with FN/I/M patients, families, stakeholders, cancer agencies and the National Aboriginal Organizations to identify the gaps and priorities in cancer care across the country. The result of the forum was the development of the First Nations, Inuit and Métis Action Plan on Cancer Control.

The perspectives of patients, survivors and families guide the work of our cancer strategy to ensure it is grounded in the realities of those most affected by cancer.

Imagine in 30 years:

  • Fewer people developing cancer
  • More people successfully treated in culturally appropriate ways
  • A better quality of life for people during treatment and beyond
