The federal and Alberta governments and the chiefs of 11 First Nations from Treaties 6, 7, and 8 signed a memorandum of understanding on Thursday at a ceremony in Edmonton. As part of this historic agreement, First Nations children will receive culturally appropriate health care without any delays in deciding which level of government will pay. The agreement stipulates that the department that is first contacted will pay for the service and can later seek reimbursement.
