This research was conducted in partnership with the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) in British Columbia based in participatory action research, and guided by Indigenous ethical frameworks that rely on qualitative and quantitative techniques to inform determinants of health and wellness for urban Indigenous people across Canada.
Using a strength-based approach to well-being, this study offers a pathway to generating measures of health and wellness that are rooted in Traditional Indigenous knowledge systems and utilize the 2012 Aboriginal Peoples Survey and 2011 National Household Survey data.
