Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Client Linkage Registry
The Mi’kmaq of Nova Scotia have been working together for over a decade to get better health data. Together, we have achieved unparalleled access to a broad range of population-level health surveillance data. Our communities are using this information to monitor changes in the health status of our population, measure health equity gaps, inform our health planning processes, and advocate for the services and resources that we need. Key to our success has been the ability to take advantage of administrative health data collected by the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness and provincial health authorities. We have developed the Nova Scotia Mi’kmaw Client Linkage Registry (MCLR), a population registry that can be linked with administrative data sources, in order to provide our communities with comparable population level health surveillance data.
