The Chisasibi Mental Wellness Team is organizing the Chisasibi Innovation Conference: Communication, Coordination, Collboration from March 14 to 17, 2016.

The purpose of this three-day conference is to ensure community input on existing Chisasibi Wellness Strategy initiatives and priorities and to identify proposed interventions to address those priorities. Special emphasis is placed on the need for more effective communication, coordination, and collaboration (the 3 Cs) among local entities and with other regional agencies.

The conference priority areas include:

  • Explore current discourses on the intersection between wellness and justice in Aboriginal contexts
  • Explore the dimensions of miyupimaatisiiun and identify priority actions based on Eeyou knowledge and approaches
  • Supplement models of social justice, especially land-based models and initiatives aimed at addressing the social determinants of health
  • Identify and develop formal collaboration frameworks among local entities

We invite participants to familiarize themselves with the Chisasibi Wellness Strategic Plan and the Eeyou Service integration table that will be used during the confrence.
