Welcome to Vancouver Native Health Society!
We are providers of supported primary care medical services and we facilitate co-operative participation for individual and collective well-being amongst Indigenous people and friends residing in and around Vancouver's downtown eastside. As will be seen while touring our re-vamped website, most of our work is remedial and culturally-rooted.
While our budgets are always modest, we take quiet pride in the work we do amongst our sisters and brothers who come forward with many difficulties, be they physical, mental, spiritual, emotional or combinations thereof. As we strive to help people achieve balance in their lives, as well as our own, it is our hope that we can contribute in some small way to whatever the term "Reconciliation" may mean.
Regardless of whether or not you live within our community, relatively close by, or somewhere far away, we hope your meeting us online will not be your only contact with us. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, located within the traditional un-ceded territory of our Coast Salish hosts, we invite you to contact us and arrange for a visit.
