The South East Regional Cancer Program, through a collaborative partnership with Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) has developed a South East Aboriginal Cancer Plan. This plan is designed to improve cancer services for First Nations, Inuit and Métis (FNIM) peoples in the South East region. The plan will be collaboratively designed with regional FNIM core health boards, advisory committees and community representatives to ensure a shared vision is created with a clear set of goals, objectives and initiatives to meet the needs of the FNIM peoples in the South East. Further, the Aboriginal Cancer Plan builds on the framework of CCO’s fourth Ontario Cancer Plan 2015-2019 (OCP IV), the Aboriginal Cancer Strategy III (ACS III) and the vision, values and goals of the SE RCP. The ACS III, which was developed in close collaboration with FNIM peoples, will provide the necessary leverage to develop an ACP that is truly impactful, respectful and sustainable, and delivers on objectives and goals leading up to 2019.
