Kílala Lelum has the mandate to enact the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action in Health which includes establishing measurable goals to identify and close the gaps in health outcomes for Indigenous peoples and to recognize, respect, and address the distinct health needs of the Métis, Inuit, First Nations, and off-reserve Aboriginal peoples. To this end, Kílala Lelum acknowledges its duty to participate in research that aims to promote health equity and Indigenous Peoples health and wellness. We are inclusive to all research ideas.
