What is SLFNHA?

The Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority (SLFNHA) serves 33 First Nation communities in the Sioux Lookout region in Ontario, Canada. Mandated by the leadership in these communities, our organization is dedicated to strengthening First Nations by contributing in unique ways to a strong health system for the Anishinabe.

The health system has many partners with varying degrees of responsibility:

  • First Nations
  • Tribal Councils
  • Government of Canada – Treaty responsibilities
  • Other health organizations (e.g. Nishnawbe Aski Nation, etc.)
