Supporting Indigenous Culture in Long-Term Care

About the Supporting Indigenous Culture in Long-Term Care Initiative

As the Indigenous elderly population continues to grow and increasingly enters long-term care (LTC), it is important to support the cultural needs of these elders. The Ontario CLRI’s “Supporting Indigenous Culture in Long-Term Care” initiative identifies and develops culturally appropriate resources to support Indigenous residents in LTC. Resources are developed and spread with support from partnerships with Indigenous organizations and communities across Ontario and Implementation Advisors with experience in dissemination and implementation, and knowledge of LTC.

The project aims to align with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (2007) and work to address various Calls to Action from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (2015).

If you have a resource for supporting Indigenous Peoples in LTC that you believe should be added to the below list, contact us at
