HELP's Aboriginal Steering Committee is seeking new members

First established in 2003, HELP’s Aboriginal Steering Committee (ASC) is made up of community members with First Nation, Métis, and Inuit ancestry, including Elders. ASC members are vital to ensuring that HELP’s research has meaning for, and is consistent with, First Nation, Métis, and Inuit communities’ objectives and intentions for their children and families.

By sharing their knowledge and experience, ASC members support a deeper understanding of the social and cultural determinants of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit children’s health and well-being. The ASC ensures HELP’s research activities involving First Nations, Métis, and Inuit are reflective of the diverse histories, cultures, languages, values and ways of knowing and being.

We need you to guide this important work forward. We are looking for creative and energetic individuals who share our common interest in improving developmental outcomes for all First Nation, Métis, and Inuit children in BC. 

If you are interested in joining the ASC, please submit your résumé, cover letter, and two references by email to Kinwa Bluesky, Senior Manager, Indigenous Initiatives, at
