[Correspondence] Canada’s global leadership and Indigenous people – Authors’ reply

We thank Bjorn Stime and colleagues for their thoughtful correspondence, which raises a broader conversation about the link between colonisation, land, and health. Although a full exploration of these issues was beyond the scope of our Series paper,1 we agree that no conversation about health can be limited solely to discussions of health system reform. We aimed to provide an overview of the health-care systems of Canada, their challenges, and solutions under debate. We also endeavoured to highlight the tremendous effects of the social determinants of health, particularly (but not exclusively) for Indigenous people.
