The Indigenous Physicians Association of Canada (IPAC) is a non-profit organization that depends on the generous support of donors and sponsors.  Help IPAC continue doing good work in Indigenous health by sponsoring PRIDoC 2022.

IPAC has been chosen as the host organization for the 10th Biennial Pacific Region Indigenous Doctors Congress (PRIDoC), on July 10-15, 2022 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This conference will take place on the unceded, traditional territories of the Coast Salish: the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. We look forward to honouring all of our nations, from coast to coast to coast and showcasing our beautiful and varied cultures.

PRIDoC is an Indigenous-led space for Indigenous physicians, residents and medical students, health researchers, health professionals and allies. We gather around shared issues of concern related to the health and wellness of the many Indigenous communities and nations throughout the Pacific Region. We are expecting 400 attendees from throughout Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Hawaii, Mainland USA and Taiwan.


IPAC continues to build and share expertise in Indigenous health and to support reconciliation through our response to the TRC’s Calls to Action in the area of Health. Our 2022 IPAC National Mentorship Forum and Annual General Meeting August will take place during PRIDoC 2022.
