With its staff of close to 70 persons, the FNQLHSSC has grown dramatically since its creation in 1994 and has been restructured since that time. Every staff number, from the Executive Director to program officers, sector managers and support staff, fulfils well defined and coordinated tasks. We have created a rigorous work framework that has resulted in professionalism, competence and dynamism combined with the desire of all employees to help improve the living conditions of the First Nations. Thanks to the dedication of its employees and to its highly effective network for the collection and exchange of information, the Commission has become a credible partner and an important influence in the field of health and social services.
