Indigenous Mentorship Network Program (IMNP)

IMNP-Ontario is a five-year health training program, funded by the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR) to provide Indigenous scholars and trainees with high quality mentorship, training, and opportunities to participate in Indigenous health research. 

Inspired by an Anishinabe concept, Mno Nimkodadding Geegi (translation: “we are all connected”), IMNP-Ontario is committed to growing and supporting community-based health research and training opportunities for Indigenous trainees and researchers in Ontario. 

Our overarching goal is to support and grow the next generation of Indigenous health scholars. When we support Indigenous health scholars to serve the research needs and capacities of Ontario’s Indigenous communities, we can advance Indigenous health equity in the province.
