This course provides students with an introduction to drivers of environmental health centred on Indigenous wellbeing and community health in Canada. Through a combination of classroom learning and field work in a local First Nation community we will introduce students to the environment and health challenges facing Indigenous peoples in Canada and community responses to these challenges. Students will work in teams with community members to study a critical health issue identified by our partner community. The research results will be presented to the class and before the community in the form of a written report, an oral presentation, and a brief personal video.

Prerequisite(s): GEOG 364.3 or permission of the instructor.
