Aboriginal communities have many opportunities and challenges in addressing the needs of a growing population, the legacy of colonization and the urgent need for improved health and education. The administration needs in First Nations communities and Aboriginal health organizations directly relate to the transfer of health programs and services from Health Canada to control by First Nations communities.

Developed in consultation with Aboriginal communities by the UBC Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health and UBC Continuing Studies, the UBC Certificate in Aboriginal Health and Community Administration Program (AHCAP) is designed for those interested in acquiring knowledge to assist with their communities’ health care administration needs in building capacity and strengthening leadership and administration.
