Worker Wellness Guidebook: Employee and Employer Roles and Responsibilities





In 2007 the Assembly of First Nations, Health Canada, and the National Native Addictions Partnership Foundation (NNAPF) began a process to carry out a comprehensive, community-driven review of substance use-related services and supports for First Nations. The work of this partnership led to the development and endorsement of Honouring Our Strengths: A Renewed Framework to Address Substance Use Issues among First Nations People in Canada (2011). The HOS Framework outlines a strength-based, systems approach to addressing substance use and associated mental health issues among First Nations people and identifies the need for a strengthened approach to support worker wellness as a key priority of a renewed continuum of care.
