You are invited to attend a virtual event to celebrate the official launch of the Indigenous Wellness and Reconciliation (IWR) Department at Providence Health Care on Thursday, February 25, 2021, from 9:15-11:00 AM.

Join the event here, and more information on how to join can be found below.

This event marks a significant milestone for PHC in our dedication to delivering the highest standard of care to support improved wellness outcomes for BC First Nations, urban Indigenous, Métis and Inuit Peoples in BC, our ongoing work to actively address anti-Indigenous racism and embed the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) 94 Calls to Action, United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and In Plain Sight into the very fabric of Providence Health Care.

The IWR Department Launch celebrates the tremendous amount of work over many years to formalize this new department, a chance to meet the new IWR Team, and share more about the new programs and services available to support self-identified Indigenous patients and families receiving care at PHC. More information on the IWR department can be found here ( but please bear with us, as our site is still under construction.

  • Dr. Lindsay Farrell, Director of Indigenous Wellness Reconciliation and Partnerships
  • Neil Fowler, Manager of Indigenous Wellness and Reconciliation
  • Olivia Palomino Meraz, Indigenous Cultural Safety Coordinator
  • Jaye Currie, Indigenous Wellness Liaison
