Maamwesying North Shore Community Health Services and Algoma Public Health, held a signing ceremony late last week in Sault Ste. Marie.

Carol Eshkakogan, the organization’s Chief Executive Officer, says this agreement is for Indigenous peoples by embracing their unique cultural knowledge, and traditional practices while improving access to and awareness of Indigenous Health Services available in the Northeast region.
