Below is the registration information for the two-day virtual Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey XI Forum (GWXI) scheduled for October 4 – 5, 2021 via Zoom Meeting.
What to expect:
For GW XI, the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions on large gatherings demands a shorter, 2-day virtual event with an agenda limited to a few priority program updates. In a virtual world, we are excited to share this year with some exciting events and activities such as Regional cultural sharing performances through pre-recorded videos, door prizes throughout the forum, and a fun assortment of GWXI themed virtual backgrounds. The following provides some key features of the virtual event:
- To ensure the BC First Nations Health Governance Structure meets its commitment (during the COVID-19 pandemic) to report and provide updates to all BC First Nations Chiefs and Leaders every 18 months.
- To provide an update on the status of the Governance Workbook and provide space for leaders Chiefs and Leaders to provide their wisdom, thoughts and perspectives on the direction of the FNHC’s work.
- For British Columbia and Canada to report back on their DRIPA and federal health legislation engagement from Spring 2021 Governance Caucuses.
- To acknowledge and provide support for First Nations Chiefs, Leaders, and Health Directors related to the Indian Residential School discoveries.
- To provide an overview of Anti-Racism work in the provincial healthcare system.
Similar to the Regional Caucuses, we are pleased to invite three (3) representatives from each BC First Nation community in BC. This includes:
- Political Lead (e.g. Chief or Proxy)
- Health Lead (e.g. Health Director, Community Health Representative, or Health Portfolio Holder on Council)
- Social Lead (e.g. Social Development Director, Social Development Worker, or Children and Family Worker)
