Musqueam’s health department provides band and community members access to basic health, mental wellness and home and community care programs on reserve.
By providing health promotion and prevention programs, we assist members in living healthier, longer lives. We encourage members to take charge of their health through education, information, and learning so they are better equipped to avoid disease and complications of chronic illnesses.
