IPHCC Membership Advantage

The IPHCC Membership Advantage

Since March, the IPHCC has supported Indigenous governed primary health care organizations as we navigate these unprecedented times together. We helped our members and associates access PPE, facilitated the sharing of wise practices, and advocated at provincial and federal levels for equitable and ethical access to funding, contact tracing, and testing and assessment.  

Now that we have entered the second wave, the IPHCC’s ongoing response activities include:

  • Continuing to advocate on behalf of our members
  • Using data to share our sector’s COVID story
  • Securing funding so that our members can enhance their mental health and addictions care capacity
  • Monitoring PPE availability

Beyond COVID, we will continue to foster collaboration amongst our members, develop resources to fight systemic racism, and advocate for a strong and comprehensive Indigenous-governed primary health care system.

There are currently no membership fees associated with becoming a voting member of the IPHCC; however, in the next fiscal year the IPHCC Board will bring forward a fee structure to voting members for approval.

By becoming a voting member of the IPHCC, your organization will have the ability to directly influence the development of our young organization, helping ensure that we continue to meet the needs of your organization and the communities you serve. We are keen to grow and evolve so as to be the best possible champion for our members.
