Drum Honouring Ceremonies

Over the summer and fall of 2021, the Toronto Central Regional Indigenous Cancer Program (TCR-ICP) team gifted regional care site partners a ceremonial drum that First Nations, Inuit​ and Métis patients and families can use for ceremonies or spiritual practices during their care. This is a significant and symbolic gift, recognizing the ongoing work and commitment to build relationships and improve the care and experience of Indigenous staff and community members.
