What We Do
Culturally Committed Provider Registry
We offer a registry of providers that strive to improve services for Indigenous clients. Applicants must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to improving their cultural safety through workshops, seminars, and education.
At Culturally Committed, we understand that striving towards cultural humility is a lifelong endeavour, and we want to engage the Indigenous community in the process of mentoring providers. This is why we seek feedback from clients -- so we can show providers what safe care looks like to Indigenous Peoples.
"Cultural safety means health care professionals adopt a humble, self-reflective clinical practise that positions them as respectful and curious partners when providing care, rather that as a figure of higher knowledge and authority."
First Nations Health Authority
Are you a health provider who:
Recognizes that systemic racism exists in healthcare?
Humbly acknowledges that you may have learning to do around the subject of cultural safety and humility?
Is open and willing to integrate teachings and feedback into your practice?
Is committed to creating a safe place for Indigenous patients, ultimately improving health outcomes for Indigenous Peoples?
If you answer "Yes!" to the above questions, we invite you to join alliances with other Culturally Committed providers, and start the application process.
I'd like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all of those who have guided my (occasionally misguided) intentions as I've deepened my understanding of cultural safety and humility. I raise my hands to elders, teachers, community members, colleagues, and acquaintances who've become the closest of friends.
I'd also like to acknowledge the amazing photographer that captured the images shared on this page: the insanely talented and ridiculously humble Ryan Dawson, from Dzawada'unuxw First Nation. Ryan, I am so grateful our paths have crossed.
