FNC Pandemic Planning Resources
Preparing for emergencies is a very important part of community health planning.  The possibility of a global influenza pandemic is frightening, but being prepared can minimize the impact.  Local, regional and federal governments in most countries around the world have developed pandemic plans to deal with an outbreak.

This summer, the Métis Centre will be holding small gatherings with Métis across Canada to share and collect stories, teachings and information on maternal-child health.
The Centre will also conduct key informant interviews with Métis midwives, health professionals, Elders and mothers.  These stories will result in a DVD showcasing Métis pride and traditions, as well as providing meaningful health information on maternal-child well-being.  DVDs will be available for free in the winter of 2009.  For more information, contact Anna Burnstein at

Cet été, le Centre des Métis accueillera des petits rassemblements de Métis de partout au Canada pour partager et recueillir des histoires, des enseignements et de l’information sur la santé maternelle et infantile.
