The Saskatchewan First Nations’ Women’s Commission (SFNWC) is the recognized regional voice for the advancement of First Nations’ women’s and children’s rights in Saskatchewan. The SFNWC is committed to the development and sustenance of healthy communities by which all First Nations people benefit. The SFNWC takes the lead on certain issues that are considered “women’s and children’s issues” in mainstream society, although not dictated as such in First Nations communities because First Nations philosophy emphasizes collective as opposed to individual rights.

 

Historically, since the 1960’s First Nations’ Women in Saskatchewan have come together to discuss a variety of issues and the poor living conditions in which they had to endure.

Broadening the Mandate of CHERA/ACRES to CAHSPR/ACRSPS

 

Background: The health care landscape in Canada has undergone dramatic transformations in the past decade, with important implications for research and decision-making in health services, health economics, and health policy domains.

There has been a growing need for a national broad-based interdisciplinary health services and policy research association to support practitioners, users and students of health research to enhance their research capacity and professional development. In response to this, a new membership-based health services association is launched.

The new Association called the Health Research / Association canadienne pour la recherche sur les services et les politiques de la santé (CAHSPR/ACRSPS), will replace the Canadian Health Economics Research Association/ Association Canadienne pour la Recherche en Économie de la Santé (CHERA/ACRES). The aim will be to enhance research capacity within both the researcher and "research user" communities.
