Throughout October and November of 2021, CRE hosted a Policy Hackathon, Sharing Circles, and circulated a survey to gather Indigenous youth’s stories, criticisms, and hopes about healthcare reform in Canada. We heard from 100 Indigenous youth about their experiences with the current healthcare system, how they’ve learned to navigate it, and to imagine radical, decolonized alternatives to the current system.
The healthcare system envisioned by Indigenous youth is one that is holistic, caring, responsive, and above all else, safe. The youth who shared space with us provided valuable insight into the road to get there, and the Hackathon participants proposed creative policy solutions to building that future. Read about it in our final report!
