improving the health and health care of Aboriginal people. Jean Goodwill is one of the founding leaders. This Association became incorporated in 1976. In 1983, the membership was extended to include the Inuit and the name was then

changed to Indian and Inuit Nurses of Canada. The latest name change occurred to reflect the current trends. Now the Association is known as the Aboriginal Nurses Association of Canada (A.N.A.C.).
