The Indigenous Peer Coordinators are regionally situated but attached to the larger Chilliwack team. These Peer Coordinators will be well-connected to their Indigenous heritage and have lived experience with substance use while currently living as role models to their peers through a commitment to their continuous growth and learning within their Indigenous culture, knowledge and spirituality. The Peer Coordinators will work alongside First Nations individuals who use substances and the families affected and link to meaningful engagement in Indigenous cultural activities and ceremonies. The Peer Coordinator will reach First Nations people living in urban settings and develop close working partnerships with the specific Indigenous communities within the catchment areas. Through the development of peer engagement networks, shared knowledge, and connections with existing resources and programs, the Peer Coordinator will provide the peers' collective voice to help identify gaps, inform policy, or create recommendations.
