Land Acknowledgement

The UBC Centre for Excellence in Indigenous health would like to begin by acknowledging that the land on which we work and play on is situated on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) People, also known as Vancouver Campus UBC.

About The Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health

After an extensive one year consultation process with Aboriginal communities, the First Nations Health Authority, educational partners, government and non-profit groups, the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health was formally established at UBC on January 1st, 2014.

The Centre is a single coordinating point for Indigenous health initiatives within UBC and acts as a contact for communities and organizations external to UBC. The Centre is dedicated to advancing Indigenous people’s health through education, innovative thinking, research, and traditional practice. It will work to improve wellness, health care and patient outcomes, and promote self-determination that includes increasing Indigenous leadership in all aspects of health and health care.
