In 2010, the MNA began the process of collecting high-quality aggregate research data on the health of citizens, which involved negotiations with Alberta Health and the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). The result was that the MNA and PHAC entered into a five-year funding arrangement to pursue Métis-specific health research, and the MNA and Alberta Health entered into an Information Sharing Agreement, which involved the collection of de-identified administrative health data for Métis Albertans. Objectively verifiable data was gathered on Métis Albertans and a report was developed in partnership with the School of Public Health at the University of Alberta. This report has been utilized as a baseline report on health and health service utilization for Métis Albertans.
