Our Aboriginal Employment Vision
We want our workforce to resemble the population we serve more closely. That is why Island Health’s plans for the future embody respect, understanding and recognition of Aboriginal peoples.
Island Health will be recognized as a leader in employment in the community and an Aboriginal "employer of choice". Given that Island Health is the largest employer on Vancouver Island, it will be the largest employer of Aboriginal peoples on Vancouver Island.
