The report does a good job of acknowledging the importance of achieving the goals for Aboriginal communities. It also highlights areas of possible engagement and collaboration with Aboriginal partners as this Framework moves into phases of endorsement, dissemination and implementation.

Operation Blue Sky

Tuesday, July 7th, 2015

MNP in partnership with HeroX, and distributed via NADA, has developed and launched a challenge designed to improve the health and wellness outcomes within remote Aboriginal communities. While Canada’s health care system is a point of national pride, various statistics show that serious health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and tuberculosis are anywhere from 1.5 to 10 times higher amongst Aboriginal Canadians.

Challenge participants will develop an actionable strategy to address Aboriginal health concerns, one that takes into consideration the history and experience of these communities. To ensure Aboriginal communities are accurately represented, it is essential that strategies be developed from within the communities or through meaningful conversations with the communities. The most innovative idea will receive a $25,000 cash prize, while a second place winner will receive $5,000. In addition, a People’s Choice winner will receive $5,000.
