As a network, we perform most of our work (collective action) at the committee level. The people working on committees leverage their knowledge in their relative areas of expertise, make plans at a committee level, and inform the actions of our larger network.
The Table of Partners is our overarching governance team, which consists of the committee chairs, local Government, First Nations, Island Health, First Nations Health Authority and the leads of health and social service agencies and organizations in the community.
Our primary focus is in advocating for enhanced or modified programs and services, influencing public policy, and collaborating on grass-roots initiatives that will benefit all area residents. We focus on "up-stream" initiatives that help keep people from becoming sick in the first place, in good health, and out of acute care. We perform our work through a lens of cultural safety and humility, and are open to growth, conversations, and new learnings.
