Softlanding was proud to be a Platinum Sponsor of Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey VI in October.
The annual Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey Forum attracts Chiefs, health leaders, front-line health workers, federal and provincial partners, and other key decision makers in BC First Nations health. The unique conference is the only one of its kind in Canada. The 2013 forum attracted more than 900 delegates, and representation from each of the five health regions across BC, including Chiefs, Health Directors, and Provincial and Federal Partners.
The conference was officially opened on the morning of Oct. 22 with the Honouring our Shared Journey: Commemorating the Transfer Ceremony. The ceremony was the largest and only one of its kind to ever take place, marking the historic transfer of health services from Health Canada to the FNHA. Witnesses from each region of the province spoke to the work alongside representatives from the First Nations Health Council, First Nations Health Directors Association, First Nations Health Authority, and federal and provincial partners.
