MNO Releases Findings of Major Chronic Disease Study

Ottawa – (March 20, 2012) – The Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) has released the most recent Métis-specific study on chronic diseases in Ottawa. The Métis Nation of Ontario has undertaken research over the past five years on various chronic diseases with a goal of improving the health status and well-being of Métis people in Ontario and to construct evidence based approaches to decision making, policy development and health promotion.

The Métis Nation of Ontario Chronic Disease Surveillance Project is a groundbreaking health surveillance initiative focused on gathering Métis-specific data on health and healthcare to determine the rate of chronic diseases in Métis people in Ontario.

The Métis Nation of Ontario has undertaken research in Diabetes, Cancer, Cardio-vascular disease and Respiratory diseases using Métis Nation of Ontario citizenship registry data. The MNO research in collaboration with the Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences (ICES) and funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada demonstrated the incidence and prevalence of chronic disease conditions are generally higher in the Métis population compared to all other Ontarians. These reports are the first research findings on chronic diseases among Métis people in Ontario and the second developed in the Metis Nation after The profile of Metis Health Status and health Care Utilization in Manitoba published by Manitoba Metis Federation in 2010.

The new Métis health data in Ontario will contribute to develop a real picture of the health status and health needs of the Métis Nation in Canada
