New Brunswick First Nation Cancer Care Plan

Kmawuhsahtipon -Togi pematioogMoving Forward Side-by-Side is a multi-year project sponsored by Tobique First Nation and funded by the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) to develop a comprehensive plan for First Nations people in New Brunswick in cancer prevention, screening, treatment, aftercare, end-of-life care and improved service integration between health care providers. The initiative is also to develop relationships with key stakeholders such as the provincial and federal governments, regional health authorities (Horizon and Vitalité), cancer non-profit organizations, the tribal councils (Mawiw, North Shore Mi'kmaq District Council and Wolastoqey Tribal Council), the 16 First Nation communities in the province and Indigenous organizations.

This initiative is focused on improving cancer experiences and outcomes for First Nation patients and families in New Brunswick throughout the cancer continuum.

The New Brunswick Lung Association has partnered with Kmawuhsahtipon -Togi pematioog – Moving Forward Side-by-Side to help provide resources, one-on-one patient care, transplant support, and more.
