CHNC Statement: Response to News of 215 Indigenous Children
Published on Wednesday, 2 June, 2021
Following the devastating and horrific news of the remains of 215 Indigenous children being discovered at the former Kamloops Indian Residential School grounds, the Community Health Nurses of Canada (CHNC), a voluntary organization that promotes health and advances nursing practice, extends our deepest condolences to the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc people and community on this tragic loss, which is challenging to process.
As leaders in community health, we are committed to the recommendations in the Truth and reconciliation Commission (TRC) and to advance the calls to action (Truth & Reconciliation). CHNC’s strategic priorities include advocating for social and political issues related to health, and advancing principles and practice toward health equity. Each one of us, as community health nurses, must commit to active reconciliation.
CHNC members honour the lives of the 215 Indigenous children and their families. We have the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc people and community, and First Nations communities across the land in our hearts. For anyone experiencing pain or distress as a result of their Residential school experience, please contact the National Indian Residential School Crisis Line at 1-866-925-4419.

CHNC2021 postponed to 2022
Published on Friday, 19 March, 2021
CHNC has made the difficult but unavoidable decision to postpone our CHNC conference once again.
While we had hoped to gather in Richmond, British Columbia for our rescheduled dates in May 2021, the continuing complexities and uncertainties surrounding covid-19 have made it increasingly difficult to do so.
Most importantly, we recognize that many, if not most, of those involved in planning, presenting and/or attending the conference will need to continue their crucial roles on the frontlines of Canada’s response to the pandemic over the coming months.
We plan to return to Richmond for CHNC2022.
We are very disappointed we will not be able to meet this year, but we very much hope to see you in 2022. Until then, please take care and stay safe during these challenging times.

President, on behalf of the Board of Directors,
