GOLD SPONSOR

Aboriginal Affairs implements OCHRE, the NSW Government’s plan for Aboriginal affairs. Through OCHRE, NSW is the first and only government in Australia to make a commitment to healing in its Aboriginal affairs policy.

As part of our core values of truth and recognition, we promote healing and respect for Aboriginal communities. The NSW Government has committed to continue to advance dialogue on healing with Aboriginal people. We
have done this through the development of the State-wide Healing Forum and the co-design and development of OCHRE Healing Forums. 

 

 

The ​First Nations Health Authority (FNHA) is the first province-wide health authority of its kind in Canada. In 2013, the FNHA assumed the programs, services, and responsibilities formerly handled by Health Canada’s First Nations Inuit Health Branch – Pacific Region. Our vision is to transform the health and well-being of BC’s First Nations and Aboriginal people by dramatically changing healthcare for the better.

The FNHA is responsible for planning, management, service delivery and funding of health programs, in partnership with First Nations communities in BC. Guided by the vision of embedding cultural safety and humility into health service delivery, the FNHA​ works to reform the way health care is delivered to BC First Nations through direct services, provincial partnership collaboration, and health systems innovation.   ​

Cultural Fusion is a small and experienced collective of Indigenous Peoples. We seek to find new ways to free the spirit of our Peoples in workplaces, policies, plans, programs and organisations. The fusion we seek is to ensure, that in spaces where there is more than one culture in play, that Indigenous Peoples and cultures are recognised and respected as an equal and essential ingredient to success. Our experience covers a wide range of settings from local Indigenous community work to engagement in international standard design and setting. We have particular skills in the design and delivery of cultural competence programs that ignite the ability of organisations, policies and systems, professional groups and individuals to appreciate and engage with the gifts and treasures of Indigenous culture and Peoples.
