June is National Indigenous History Month. Indigenous midwives are integral in strengthening Indigenous families and communities. We seek to listen to, learn from and amplify Indigenous perspectives.
Recognizing the specific challenges Ontario's Indigenous midwives may encounter, there is now a Wellness Spending Account (WSA) tailored to cultural needs, funded by a one-year grant from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, to ease the burden of wellness-related expenses in 2023.
We hope that this month and throughout the year, we are able to help you in accessing services in support of your wellbeing.
