Looking for Aboriginal health in legislation and policies, 1970-2008: The policy synthesis project

January 2011

Canada's health system is varied, complex and inconsistent when it comes to serving Aboriginal peoples. This NCCAH report tracks Aboriginal-specific policies and legislation to 2008, providing evidence that Aboriginal health policy in Canada largely remains a patchwork, and highlighting significant gaps and jurisdictional issues. The policy synthesis also documents health-related provisions in self-government agreements and draws attention to emerging opportunities for Aboriginal engagement in shaping health policy, programs and services.
