ANISHINABEK NATION HEAD OFFICE— The Anishinabek Nation’s Health Transformation Team is now booking engagement sessions with Anishinabek Nation member First Nations Chiefs and Councils. The Team is holding sessions in-person or through Zoom.
Thus far, two First Nations have met with the Team, with another meeting happening at the beginning of June. Meetings involving members are expected to take place in the future.

The Team has also been collaborating with other Provincial Territorial Organizations to share best practices. Read More
