Treaty #3
Posted 2 weeks ago


Grand Council Treaty #3 (GCT#3) is the traditional government of the Anishinaabe Nation in Treaty #3 representing 28 communities across the Territory with a mandate to protect the future of the Anishinaabe people by ensuring the protection, preservation and enhancement of inherent and treaty rights.

We are seeking proposals from qualified and experienced consultants to conduct a Diabetes Mapping and Needs Assessment in Treaty 3 Communities. The assessment will help gather information and identify gaps in current diabetes care and prevention within the communities of Treaty 3 region.

The assessment will focus on engaging the regional health organizations, communities, diabetes workers, health experts and leadership to collect and analyze data on diabetes rates, management, and prevention efforts. The ultimate goal is to create an informed and coordinated approach to address diabetes within Treaty 3 communities.


The Diabetes Mapping and Needs Assessment will have the following components:

  1. Review of existing data – review and analysis of existing data on diabetes prevalence, management, and prevention efforts within Treaty 3 communities, strengths, gaps and weaknesses.
  2. Community Engagement – engage with communities, diabetes workers, leadership, and key partners to gain insights into their experiences with diabetes, current successful initiatives, and possible barriers to prevention and management.
  3. Needs Assessment- identify the successes, needs and gaps in diabetes prevention and management services within Treaty 3 communities.
  4. Mapping of services, resources – conduct a mapping of existing diabetes prevention and management services and resources available in Treaty 3 communities, identifying innovative and wise practices, gaps in service and current collaboration and partnerships.
  5. Documentation – produce a report summarizing the findings of the assessment highlighting key successes, innovative practices and recommendations for addressing gaps, enhancing services, and developing new approaches to diabetes prevention and management in Treaty 3 communities.


  • A comprehensive Diabetes Mapping and Needs Assessment report summarizing findings and recommendations.
  • A presentation of the report to the communities, regional health organizations and leadership.


The project is expected to commence on January 31, 2024, and the final report and presentation should be delivered by March 1, 2024.
