ICES–Métis Nation of Ontario Reports on Chronic Diseases


The Chronic Disease Surveillance Project is a groundbreaking health surveillance initiative of the Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) that is focused on gathering Métis-specific data on health and healthcare. The project includes studies, produced in partnership with ICES, that examine rates of chronic disease and healthcare outcomes in the Métis population. The findings will be useful in allowing the MNO to determine the health priorities of Métis people in Ontario, as well as to develop and deliver health programs tailored to their specific needs.

Fact sheets, clinical significance reports and technical reports are available for each chronic disease studied.

Visit the Métis Nation of Ontario website to download all reports.
