The Canadian Centre for Caregiving Excellence is supporting researchers at the University of Alberta to learn about current barriers and opportunities for supporting Indigenous family caregivers.

  • Interview healthcare providers working in the Samson Cree Nation and Enoch communities to develop an understanding of the current barriers to supporting Indigenous family caregivers
  • Produce a report outlining recommended tools and resources for health providers who support caregivers
