Fraser Health is one of the largest of five regional health authorities in BC, working together with the Ministry of Health. Fraser Health is responsible for delivering hospital and community-based health services to more than 1.9 million people in 20 diverse communities from Burnaby to the Fraser Canyon, on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish and Nlaka'pamux Nations. Fraser Health's communities include a diverse, multicultural population and approximately 62,000 Indigenous Peoples, associated with 32 First Nation communities and 5 Métis chartered communities.

Fraser Health's services include 12 hospitals (including the Royal Columbian Hospital - Level 1 and the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre - Level 3 Trauma centres), the province's first state-of-the-art outpatient care and surgery centre, as well as other long-term and community health care facilities in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, British Columbia. More than 40,000 staff, medical staff, and volunteers work toward Fraser Health's common purpose: to improve the health of the population and the quality of life of the people it serves.

Fraser Health is committed to living its values of respect, caring and trust in pursuit of its vision: Better health. Best in health care. Fraser Health believes patients and their families are equal and important partners in care. Fraser Health believes in transparency and is committed to being accountable to its stakeholders.

Indigenous health and cultural safety are key priorities for Fraser Health, as it continues to align its values, services, and operations with the key principles within the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, The Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls To Action and the Métis Nation Relationship Accord II. It is equally committed to fulfilling the principles within the Fraser Partnership Accord between the Fraser Salish Regional Caucus, First Nations Health Authority and Fraser Health, along with the Letter of Understanding on the Métis Nation Relationship Accord II. 

Supporting the Vision, Values, Purpose and Commitments of Fraser Health including service delivery that is centered around patients/clients/residents and families: On our journey towards reconciliation, Fraser Health acknowledges the traditional territories on which we work including the traditional territories of the Coast Salish and Nlaka'pamux Nations. Fraser Health is committed to working with First Nations, Métis and Inuit in the Fraser Health Region to plan and deliver culturally safe health services. We are thankful to the Honourable Dr. Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond (Aki-Kwe) and the almost 9,000 Indigenous peoples and health care workers whose courage to share their stories and experiences helped to shape the report, In Plain Sight, and the call to action needed for change. We are committed to implementing all recommendations within our responsibility to lead, and further commit to partner with and support the Ministry of Health to implement all other recommendations.
