Ontario Improving Access to Aboriginal Midwifery Care in Sudbury

Supporting Maternal Health and Wellness in Indigenous Communities

I was pleased to be on-hand at Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre today to announce funding from the Ontario Government to hire two new midwives to provide culturally appropriate child and maternity care for up to 40 Indigenous women and their children in the community over the next three years.

Ontario’s First Nations Health Action Plan commits to a $222 million dollar investment and a sustained commitment of $104.5 million dollars thereafter to address Indigenous healthcare needs.

Aboriginal Midwives provide a full range of culturally safe midwifery primary care, support services, language and community education.
