Health Supports

The health and safety of participants is of primary importance and will be reflected in the planning and implementing of all TRC activities. Health Canada’s IRS Resolution Health Support Program will be available to participants before, during and after TRC events.

Emotional support will be provided through a network of Aboriginal Regional Health Support Workers. Cultural supports will be provided by Elders. Professional counselling will be delivered by Health Canada registered service providers. There is a 24 hour toll-free telephone crisis line available seven days a week: 1-866-925-4419.

The TRC will work closely with Health Canada to ensure that particular attention is given to those who are elderly, in fragile health and/or those individuals who may be vulnerable to emotional distress.
