New Health Council of Canada Report Urges Governments to Work Toward Improving Health of Aboriginal Seniors

November 28, 2013 – A new report from the Health Council of Canada has found that Aboriginal seniors often do not receive the same level of health care as non-Aboriginal Canadians because of poor communication, collaboration, and disputes between governments about who is responsible for the care of Aboriginal people. The report, entitled Canada’s most vulnerable: Improving health care for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis seniors, stresses that, in order to bridge this gap, governments across Canada must place greatest emphasis on collaboration toward improving health care for Aboriginal seniors.

More information on Canada’s most vulnerable: Improving health care for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis seniors can be found here.

The full report can be found on the Health Council of Canada’s website, here.
