Community Involvement in Health and Healing

CSFS Community Engagement HUB

The CSFS Community Engagement HUB established September 2010 and is a program that is associated with First Nations Health Council to support member First Nations in the promotion of health and well-being. Community Engagement HUBs are groups of First Nations Communities that agree to plan. Collaborate and communicate to meet their nation’s health priorities. The CSFs HUB also provides a support for First Nations Communities to partner with the First Nation’s council to implement the Tripartite First Nation’s Health Plan. The HUB is a collaborative effort that is hosted through Carrier Sekani family Services. Our HUB is a neutral collaboration based upon our shared experience, culture and tribal affiliation.
