Developing Health and Wellness Plans: A Guide for First Nations

Developing Health and Wellness Plans: A Guide for First Nations

The First Nations Health Managers Association is excited to offer Developing Health and Wellness Plans: A Guide for First Nations, developed for the first time by a national First Nation health organization. This new direction signals a change to approach, one that honours and respects the experiences and inherent wisdom of First Nations health managers.


The Guide has been developed based on values – culture-based, community-based, strength-based, and quality-based. In the Guide, we call them “Dynamic Values” because they represent action and empowerment. The Dynamic Values are not activities but are “ways of working” that honour each community’s traditions and strengths while inclusively planning for quality health services. The guide will provide examples of how Dynamic Values are demonstrated during each stage to help you integrate them into your planning process.


Rather than using conceptual framework, this Guide is based on the key stages that an organization goes through as it develops their plan for wellness. This user-friendly approach is based on wise practices and incorporates the voices of hundreds of First Nation health Managers.

Whether this is the first time you are developing a Health and Wellness Plan or the tenth time, whether you are a single small community or a large multi-community group, and regardless of the type of funding agreement you are in, there will be content in this Guide that can help you plan.


This Guide supports the Health and Wellness Planning Toolbox available here and the Health and Wellness Planning: CORE Essentials available here.
