Ottawa Health Services Network Inc. (OHSNI) respects the Inuit’s vision for wellness - physically and mentally healthy, independent individuals and families who have taken ownership of personal and community health, and Inuit-specific processes, developed and driven by Inuit, with adequate financial, information and infrastructure support to implement the strategies developed and put into action.
Today, the Inuit have a vision that focuses on healthy individuals, families, and communities. This includes funding strategies that are developed and managed by Nunavummiut to fit their specific needs. With this vision as a touchstone for our actions, OHSNI has provided case management, medical interpretation and coordinates specialty health care services to the Inuit for over seventeen years. We are devoted to providing prompt and appropriate services for the individuals under our mandate, paying special attention to our patients’ culture, needs, wishes and beliefs.
