Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge the presence of the People of the Three Fires Confederacy (Ojibwe, Odawa, Potawatomi and Huron/Wendat) and the importance of reconciliation. Health research and care can benefit from a deep appreciate of the past and present healing practises of Indigenous people. There is urgency for health research, care, and training to meet the needs of Indigenous communities in Canada; WE-SPARK is dedicated to such positive action.
