About Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin (KIM)

Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin (KIM) was established in January 2020 by the Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak (MKO) Chiefs Task Force on Health.  Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin Inc., (which means “Northern Peoples Wellness,”) will work to support the health and wellness priorities identified by First Nations in Northern Manitoba and will offer health and wellness services that are reflective of the needs and priorities of First Nations people in Manitoba’s north.

“The KIM story has always centered around the collective aim of achieving meaningful health transformation for First Nations people. Wellness means gaining access to the existing health and wellness services available to other Manitobans; but it also means equity and safe care, free of racism, health sovereignty, and choice.”
