The Aboriginal Health Transition Fund

In an effort to improve the health status of Canada’s Aboriginal peoples, the federal government has partnered with the provinces and territories to deliver the Aboriginal Health Transition Fund (AHTF). With three distinct funding envelopes, Integration, Adaptation and Pan-Canadian, the AHTF provides funding for Aboriginal initiatives that 1) improve accessibility of health programs and services for Aboriginal peoples; 2) adapt existing health programs and services to better meet the needs of Aboriginal peoples; 3) increase the participation of Aboriginal peoples in the design, development, implementation and evaluation of programs and services that serve Aboriginal populations.

Below is a list of AHTF Projects operating in Newfoundland and Labrador:
