There are a number of important indicators that are used to understand and identify the health and wellness of individuals and families. In Ontario, since 2014 a great deal of work has occurred in creating and ‘Urban Indigenous Action Plan’ with the goal of improving the socio-economic situation for all Aboriginal peoples, who live, work, and raise their families in urban communities across Ontario.
What are considered important indicators of family and child wellness?
A safe and stable place to live
Reliable and adequate income/employment
Access to nutritious food
Education and learning opportunities
Access to health services
Belonging and participation in social networks
Practice and promotion of culture/language
Continuing the Journey
We are bringing together people from our Indigenous and non-Indigenous community across St. Thomas-Elgin. We need to work diligently to establish, encourage, and enhance the communication and sharing across St. Thomas-Elgin.
