The Aboriginal Health Human Resources Initiative (AHHRI) seeks to ensure that First Nations, Inuit, and Métis have access to health providers they need both now and in the future. AHHRI supports this in two ways.
One, providing financial support for scholarships and bursaries for Indigenous students pursuing post-secondary health education. This is administered through Indspire.
Two, supporting both health managers and community-based workers. For health managers, it is to support them in achieving their First Nations Health Managers Certification offered by the First Nations Health Managers Association. For community-based workers, it is to help them acquire the skills to more effectively meet Aboriginal communities’ health care needs. APC issues an annual Call for Applications to financially support health managers and community-based workers.
