Although many overtly racist policies have been repealed since Confederation, their legacy continues to affect Indigenous peoples’ health and well-being.
Created by BUILD. Films and Networked Health, with funding and support from the Canadian Medical Association, this film is shining a light on the impacts of colonialism and systemic racism.
The Unforgotten features the stories of Inuit, Métis and First Nations peoples who have been forcibly sterilized, abused in hospital, forced from their homes and land and left dying in emergency department waiting rooms.
Accompanied by educational resources, this film was created to raise awareness, incite reflection and spark conversations about how to make meaningful change happen in health care.
