Sadly, this year marks NAHO’s twelfth and final year of operations. The organization’s funding was cut in the 2012 federal budget and its office closed on June 29, 2012. However, I am pleased to report that the Journal has been transferred to a new publisher: the Aboriginal Health Research Networks (AHRNet) Secretariat at the University of Victoria. The Secretariat will be publishing Volume 10 and future issues. Invitations for submissions will be posted on their Web site: www.ahrnets.ca.

I invite you to visit www.naho.ca/jah for information about back and current issues, and www.ahrnets.ca for information about future issues. NAHO’s Web site will remain online until December 2017. Stay tuned for Volume 9, Issue 2, a special issue on Inuit health coming in winter/spring 2013.
