Priorities and indicators

A set of 17 indicator concepts has been identified and will be further developed and then used to measure progress towards the Peoples-specific, self-determined priorities

Ways of measuring the indicators

We will be using several data sources for the indicators:

  • Community engagement sessions led by Indigenous organizations
  • Interviews with First Nations, Inuit and Métis adults who have lived experience of the cancer journey
  • Indigenous-led surveys that provide high quality, Indigenous-determined and Indigenous-owned data
  • Surveys with First Nations, Inuit and Métis identifiers where approval has been given by Indigenous organizations whose community members are represented in the data
  • Linkage between Indigenous registries and healthcare databases made possible through collaboration between Indigenous organizations and cancer agencies/programs

Data will be added as they become available, starting spring 2023.
