Indigenous Advisory Circle

Guiding physicians in providing culturally safe, equitable care and improving health outcomes for First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples in Alberta.

About the Indigenous Advisory Circle

As a regulator, CPSA’s priority is guiding physicians in providing their patients with safe, high-quality health care. The Indigenous Advisory Circle (the Circle) helps us better support Indigenous patients and better guide the physicians who care for them.

Circle membership

Our goal is that Circle membership represent the diverse perspectives and lived experiences of First Nations, Métis and Inuit Peoples in Alberta.
