Children’s Health Policy Centre
We are an interdisciplinary research group in the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser University. We focus on improving social and emotional wellbeing for all children, and on the public policies needed to reach these goals. Our work complements the mission of the Faculty of Health Sciences to advance the health of populations locally, nationally and globally.
At the Children’s Health Policy Centre we are deeply saddened to learn of the 215 children whose bodies have been discovered on the site of the former residential school in Kamloops. We are also saddened to learn of similar news coming from other Indigenous Communities. In honour of all these children and their families and communities, and in honour of all Indigenous Peoples, we stand with you and we remain committed to moving forward on the path of truth and reconciliation. — Updated June 24/21
