Welcome to the website for the Atlantic Indigenous Mentorship Network. The Atlantic-IMN is a regional network that offers mentorship, learning opportunities, and financial support to Indigenous students and early career researchers pursuing Indigenous health research and health professional programs. It is a collaboration among universities, communities and community-based organizations, and Indigenous governments across Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland and Labrador. Our goal is to support Indigenous-led health research in the Atlantic region.
We acknowledge that the lands on which we gather are the traditional and unceded territories of the Beothuk, Mi’kmaq, and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) Peoples, and the homelands of the Innu and Inuit of Labrador. We recognize the ancestral and continued ties of Indigenous Peoples to the lands and waters in the region known as Atlantic Canada.
