The Urban Indigenous Wellbeing Collective is an interdisciplinary research collective of Elders, community members, partner organizations, and Indigenous and settler researchers and trainees. Guided by principles of an Indigenous relational approach, this team is committed to respectfully working with, and responding to, Urban Indigenous Community identified research priorities. Team members have experience and expertise in community-led Indigenous research methodologies, Indigenous health, health promotion, identity and belonging, cultural safety, land-based healing, population health, geography, creative practices, occupational therapy, and mental wellness.


The Urban Indigenous Wellbeing Collective was founded in 2021, thanks to the dedication and vision of our founding members. While they are no longer active members of the Collective, their contributions were integral in shaping the foundation and mission of our collective. We honour their legacy and the solid groundwork they established for our ongoing work in prioritizing Indigenous health and wellbeing.
