We believe that culture is central to healing and wellness
Welcome to Shkaabe Makwa's website! Over the past few years we have been building our team within the Provincial System Support Program (PSSP) at CAMH. We are a dynamic group with staff from First Nations, Inuit and Métis communities – and our life stories represent great diversity and experience.
We are excited about the opportunity to assist in moving forward systems improvement initiatives. We believe that culture is central to healing and wellness - and we are committed to bringing about change in ways that respects and honours traditional knowledge and community expertise.
Please visit our website often to learn about current initiatives, upcoming events and available resources.
