About the Program

Why Our Program is Important

As the largest employer on Vancouver Island, we want our workforce to resemble the population we serve more closely. Island Health’s Indigenous Recruitment & Retention Program was created to help us build strong long-term relationships with the First Nations communities and Indigenous organizations on Vancouver Island.

Through a wide range of initiatives, we are working to encourage and enhance Indigenous employment on Vancouver Island in the health-care sector to assist in meeting Island Health's future workforce needs.
