About KIM Inc.

Northern Peoples’ Wellness: Together, we will work with First Nations to transform health and
wellness services and improve health outcomes for First Nations people in the north.

Keewatinohk Inniniw Minoayawin Inc. (KIM Inc.) was established to work towards a new health system
that will better respond to the needs of northern First Nations people in Manitoba. KIM Inc.
supports health and wellness services for 23 sovereign First Nation communities in northern
Manitoba, with a focus on equitable care, addressing racism in the health care system,
responsiveness to emerging needs, and filling gaps in the health care system. More than simply
taking over responsibility for health services currently under the auspices of Indigenous Services
Canada First Nations and Inuit Health, KIM Inc. will progress through advocacy, collaboration, and
integration with the First Nation communities, and federal/provincial partners.

This new system will be developed through speaking directly to healthcare experts and the First
Nations communities and negotiating with systems so that services can be tailored to meet the needs
of each First Nation and northern First Nations as a collective. The community members of the
northern Manitoba First Nations are the foundation of this new and historic health care system. KIM
Inc. is governed by a three-part structure led by First Nations and is inclusive of 23 political
leaders appointed by each of 6 caucuses and a 5 to 11-member board of directors with preference in
selection to persons with experience in the health sector.
