Helen McCrae Award 2021 – Victoria Alfred from BCIT

Victoria is a member of ‘Namgis First Nations Band.  She is a peer support mentor with the BCIT Indigenous Services.  Her background as a paramedic has prepared her for the journey patients have into the health care system.

Victoria’s ultimate goal is to return to her home community of Alert Bay and provide much needed health coverage, mentorship and leadership in the community for the indigenous youth of the Band.
