Urban Indigenous Wellbeing

Responding to urban Indigenous community needs through a holistic approach to spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health.

The Urban Indigenous Wellbeing Cluster is an interdisciplinary research collective of Elders, Community Members, partner organizations, and Indigenous and settler researchers and trainees.

Guided by principles of an Indigenous relational approach, this team is committed to respectfully working with, and responding to, Urban Indigenous Community identified research priorities. Team members have experience and expertise in community-led Indigenous research methodologies, Indigenous health, health promotion, identity and belonging, cultural safety, land-based healing, population health, geography, creative practices, occupational therapy, and mental wellness.
