Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to review and summarize past urban Indigenous health and wellness studies conducted in Manitoba and Saskatchewan from 1996 to 2018 as part of a larger project to develop community-driven research platforms that focus on Indigenous health. Using the scoping review methodology, this paper presents literature from 13 databases in six categories: chronic disease, preventative and population health, maternal health, sexual health, traditional health and medicine, and the determinants of health proposed by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC). This paper will be used as a first step to direct future research topics for communities and researchers by identifying research gaps.
