Project #2: McGill Indigenous Student Health Promotion

McGill Indigenous students are developing health promotion materials for fellow Indigenous students through research and community consultation!

The research project is comprised of three phases:

  1. Interviews and focus groups with McGill Indigenous students and community stakeholders
  2. Review of the Canadian Indigenous Student Health Comparison Report: Data from the 2013 and 2016 National College Health Assessment
  3. Assessment of materials developed to support McGill Indigenous student success!
     

This project used the Kahnawake Code of Ethics and was developed in collaboration with the following advisory group members, comprising of Indigenous students and stakeholders:

  • Alex M. McComber
  • Alexandre Allard
  • Dr. Ann Macaulay
  • Carlee Loft
  • Marsha Vicaire

Thank you to our advisory committee members for their wisdom and guidance.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the Indigenous students who took the time to share their stories and insights on creating meaningful health promotion materials. A special thank you to the administrators who participated in the interviews for their feedback and suggestions.

Data from the National College Health Assessment

We are thrilled to share the findings from the Canadian Indigenous Student Health Comparison Report!

Below are a data reports from the 2013 and 2016 National College Health Assessment that compare responses from Indigenous and non-Indigenous students. McGill’s First Peoples’ House and Indigenous students are using these data to inform health promotion at McGill. We are sharing these resources with other Canadian postsecondary campuses who are interested in learning more about Canadian Indigenous student health trends.
