The presentations will highlight the breadth of impacts that the pandemic has had on the lives of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. For example, they will highlight how First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples’ experiences with health inequities, mental health, physical safety and mobility have been exacerbated through the pandemic. Panelists will also offer up ideas for community-led solutions and strengths exercised by First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and communities throughout COVID-19, as well as policies and services to enhance their health and well-being.
