Indigenous Front Line Workers: Mapping Future Directions in the Resolution Health Support Workers and Non-Insured Health Benefits Navigator Programs in Atlantic Canada

The Indian Residential School Settlement Agreement and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission have transformed healing, health and wellbeing services for Indigenous peoples who attended residential and their descendants. Working with the frontline health workers who provide the Resolution Health Support Program and the Non-Insured Health Benefits Navigator Program, this research maps the successes and challenges in providing cultural relevant healing services to address intergenerational trauma and documents the impacts of the programs for residential school survivors and their families in Atlantic Canada. This evidence will direct future policy and program developments.
