COVID-19 Indigenous Engagement Program

Navigating COVID-19 for Indigenous PWD and their families in Canada

The COVID-19 global pandemic is significantly impacting Indigenous communities in Canada, including Indigenous persons with disabilities and their families. BCANDS is engaging with Indigenous communities across Canada to identify the needs, barriers, priorities and available resources for Indigenous persons living with disabilities and their families.

The information gathered by BCANDS COVID-19 Indigenous Engagement Coordinator on available supports for Indigenous persons with disabilities and their families is highlighted in the article and infographic below: Navigating COVID-19 for Indigenous Persons with Disabilities and Their Families – Plan Institute

BCANDS continues to engage members of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit communities across Canada, by collecting data through surveys, focus groups and one-on-one interviews. The data collected from your communities during this research will inform the recommendations made to back to your community, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), government officials, and Indigenous policy-makers.
