We are working toward better health for all in our communities.

Tajikeimɨk is the new and developing health and wellness organization being created to lead health transformation for Mi’kmaw communities in Nova Scotia.

Health transformation is the process of the Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia taking control of the design and delivery of their health and wellness services to improve overall health for individuals and communities.

Over this multi-year journey, the health transformation process will build on, grow and evolve the health and wellness services and programs used by Mi’kmaw people in Nova Scotia, with a focus on high-quality, culturally safe and wholistic approaches.

The Chiefs and Health Directors from the 13 First Nations in Nova Scotia have long been working in their communities, and with Mi’kmaw organizations, to address gaps in health services and improve wellness. This work has created a strong foundation to build health transformation.
