KTC Health Administration is designed in a supportive manner around our member Nations.
The primary intent of KTC Health is to provide internal support and expertise by offering confidential advice, recommendations, and guidance on an ongoing basis to build capacity within our member Nations. We also work on monitoring and analyzing needs in order to recommend best practices and advantageous opportunities for providing the highest level of health service delivery.
Lastly, we strive to monitor and participate, where beneficial, in Treaty 8, Alberta region and national health initiatives and actions. We seek and seize opportunities as they arise to directly benefit our member Nations and Treaty 8 collectively.
We provide a stable administrative and management environment for First Nations and Inuit Health Branch to broker regional activities, while at the same time, allowing KTC to benefit from additional administrative funds to offset program costs.
