New Office To Tackle Systemic Racism Within Health-Care System In Sask.
According to the CBC, an office that will investigate racism against First Nations people within the health-care system is being set up in Saskatchewan.
The First Nations Health Ombudsperson's Office is federally funded and will be established by the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN). Bobby Cameron, the FSIN chief, and Patty Hajdu, the federal minister of Indigenous Services, announced the initiative on Tuesday.
The office is meant to be a safe place where First Nations people can bring discrimination complaints.
