Welcome to the Home Page of the First Nations Health Managers Association (FNHMA)
The FNHMA provides leadership in First Nations health management activities by developing and promoting quality standards, practices, research, certification, networking and professional development to expand capacity for our members and First Nations communities.
The FNHMA recognizes that First Nations Health Managers are leaders who honour, maintain and uphold inherent ways of knowing while balancing management principles to bring excellence to their communities and health programs. The FNHMA is here to provide support!

FNHMA and COVID-19
FNHMA’s highest priority is the health and safety of employees, members and communities. As such, we here at FNHMA have taken steps in order to protect our members and employees during this pandemic. Currently, all FNHMA staff members are working remotely in order to help prevent the spread of the disease and to support our families. FNHMA staff will be working remotely until it is deemed safe to return to our workplace.
We also know that life goes on and we are committed to serving our members the best we can in these circumstances. All FNHMA staff members can be accessed via email, which can be found in the Staff Directory here. Read the complete FNHMA Notice RE: COVID-19 here.
To support First Nations Health Managers in Canada, FNHMA has proud to announce its newest initiative, InfoPoint. InfoPoint is an information sharing initiative developed for First Nations health managers. COVID-19 has created challenges for First Nations health managers in communities across the country. These challenges have given rise to questions without a clear place to ask them. InfoPoint is a help line where First Nations Health Managers may call if they have questions or are searching for reliable, credible resources around COVID-19.
Learn more about InfoPoint from the video below.
