Fraser Health is one of seven health authorities in British Columbia and are responsible for providing health care to 1.9 million people in 20 diverse communities from Burnaby to Fraser Canyon on the traditional territories of the Coast Salish and Nlaka'pumux peoples.

We were thrilled to have Riel Drury come in to meet with us and share his story.

As part of the Indigenous Recruitment and Retention Team for Fraser Health and an alumnus of SFU’s Beedie School of Business, Riel shared an overview of their new Indigenous Recruitment and Retention Team, what they do and why they exist. Their objective is to recruit 2500 Indigenous Employees within the next 5 years to improve the existing health care system by incorporating Indigenous perspectives and values. He covered what it means to have a culturally safe space at Fraser Health and summarize some of the programs that are on the horizon for retention, like the Indigenous Leaderships Cohort. He discussed the benefits of working at Fraser Health, like time off to pursue cultural practices, having a support team in house that connects on a regular basis and strong mentorship that helps you find a career that fits an individual. 

Please reach out to Riel if you are considering a career in health promotion and wellness!
