The Cree Board of Health and Social Services of James was created in 1978 pursuant to the signing of the James Bay and Northern Quebec agreement. It is responsible for the management of health and social services in the entire Cree territory of James Bay, whether these services be those offered to all other Quebecers or those offered to other First Nations by the government of Canada.
The Cree Board of Health is a young organization, relative to the other health organizations, and is in a rapid growth phase. Much has been done, but even more remains to be done for the Crees to have access to the same services as those offered to persons living in the urban regions of Quebec. The Crees welcome you to come and work with them to build their future.
