NAN Youth and Elders Gathering

The Youth and Elders Gathering on Health Transformation will be held on April 26-27 in Thunder Bay at the Nor’Wester Hotel & Convention Centre, 2080 Hwy 61.

This meeting will bring together youth and Elders from across the NAN Territory to share knowledge, identify gaps and begin to develop solutions for addressing health transformation and critical issues that directly affect and impact the NAN Territory. Most importantly, we want to ensure the NAN communities, its members and service providers are meaningfully engaged throughout the health transformation process. For this gathering, we are seeking youth between the ages of 18-21. When the community engagement process begins we want to ensure youth of all ages will be engaged at the community level.
