The Indigenous Health and Wellness Workers at St Paul's Hospital were recently told at a meeting that the Indigenous Health Worker positions were being dissolved in a very colonial/underhanded manner with no union representation.

Our Indigenous community needs these Indigenous service providers in place. It’s something central to their well-being and it’s also important for the community to be working with staff who are actually embedded in Indigenous practice as a part of their daily life.

Providence was supposed to be working towards providing culturally safe acute and outpatient care across all services and programs.  How does dissolving an existing team known and trusted in community help achieve these goals?
