Wellness Wheel has a mandate to support First Nations and Metis peoples and communities to develop and implement health and research activities that build capacity in Indigenous wellbeing. We achieve this by engaging in three strategic directions that were the outcome of an MOU signed by Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, Health Canada, and the Saskatchewan Ministry of Health in August 2008. Our network is based on the foundation of the Cultural Responsiveness Framework (CRF).
Restore First Nations Community-based health and wellness systems
Establish a “middle ground” for engagement between mainstream and First Nations systems and worldviews
Transform mainstream service delivery to become culturally responsive
