About the Toolkit

The Palliative Care Toolkit for Indigenous Communities was created by Cancer Care Ontario in collaboration with First Nations, Métis and Inuit families and communities.  It includes:

  • First Nations, Inuit and Métis definitions of palliative care
  • Personal stories and other resources to help First Nations, Inuit and Métis families and communities develop capacity in palliative care, and cope with grief and loss
  • Information to support decision-making and planning for Indigenous people living with advanced cancer
  • Information to help care partners care for community members living with advanced cancer

This program has been identified as a resource that supports Indigenous culture in long-term care by the Ontario Caring Advisory Circle.
