Health disparities persist, which are due to the impacts of colonization and Indigenous specific racism.

Healthy lands, healthy people.

Island Health acknowledges and recognizes these homelands and the stewardship of Indigenous peoples of this land; it is with humility we continue to work toward building our relationship.
