The First Nations Environmental Health Innovation Network (FNEHIN) is a Canada-wide, web-based network that provides information to assist First Nation communities to participate in environmental health research and to address their environmental health concerns.
The FNEHIN aims to:
• Encourage the growth of First Nations programs related to the human health impacts of environmental conditions.
• Actively communicate and provide access to relevant information and tools that will assist First Nation communities in making informed decisions.
• Provide a place to exchange information and enable collaboration between First Nations, researchers and other environmental health stakeholders.
• Promote the use of Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge in environmental health research.
• Communicate, build linkages, and identify opportunities for partnerships with First Nations’ organizations and communities, academic and research departments, federal and provincial governmental organizations, the corporate sector, and non-governmental organizations.
The secretariat is based at the Assembly of First Nations, Environmental Stewardship Unit.
