First Nations IT’S TIME Toolkit (English)

The TEACH Project is excited to share a First Nations-specific version of IT'S TIME Indigenous Tools and Strategies on Tobacco: Interventions, Medicines and Education. This toolkit provides community workers, community members, and others with culturally-relevant commercial tobacco cessation tools. IT'S TIME is a model of collaboration and integration between mainstream cessation resources, and Indigenous ways of learning and knowing. This resource was developed in collaboration with an Engagement Circle of First Nations community workers, health care providers and Elders. Please note that all of these materials can be freely copied, shared and adapted, in accordance with the principles of Ownership, Control, Access and Possession (OCAP). Please feel free to supplement the toolkit with your own materials!
