Northern Health leads the way in promoting health and providing health services for Northern, rural, and Indigenous populations.

What if we could:

  • Collaborate with partners to support people in the North to be well and stay independent?
  • Create a health system built on person-centred care and cultural safety?
  • Provide an environment that embraces diversity and a sense of belonging for all?
  • Be the first place people look for rewarding careers with opportunities for growth?
  • Use technology and innovation to provide access to services closer to home?
