Current projects

Bloodvein First Nation (Miskosepi)
The College of Rehabilitation Sciences along with other colleges within the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences will be working with the Bloodvein Community to provide the community members a Health Fair in spring/summer 2019. The goals of the health fair will be to provide intervention, prevention and initiative; to provide screening and brief assessments and PRN educational sessions. Faculty and staff will be involved in this endeavor.

Lake Manitoba First Nation (Animo-ziibiing)
The College of Rehabilitation Sciences is currently working with the community to build Zaagate Garden, a playground that will be culturally appropriate, safe, interactive, sustainable and accessible year round by children who have accessibility challenges.

“The design is modelled after the four directions of the medicine wheel,” says Debra Beach Ducharme, director of Indigenous health integration for Ongomiizwin, the Rady Faculty’s Indigenous Institute of Health and Healing. “The decking around the arbour will be safe for children in wheelchairs, and they will access children’s activities in each of the four directions.”

Little Saskatchewan First Nation (Kaakiiskakamigaag)
Little Saskatchewan First Nation is the newest community to join the Kiga mamo anokimin onji minoayawin partnership. Over the summer of 2019, the community and the college will be working together on projects.
