Health Canada and First Nations and Inuit Health Branch (FNIHB) are committed to increasing the presence and participation of Aboriginal registered nurses within their respective organizations. Aboriginal communities, the Aboriginal Nurses Association of Canada, and the “Royal Commission on Aboriginal People” (1996) have also expressed the need for more nurses of Aboriginal ancestry. To this end, Health Canada approached the Canadian Association of University Schools of Nursing (CAUSN) to facilitate a national task force on this matter.
