Canada – Four recipients of the 2022 Awards of Excellence in Nursing announced from Indigenous Services Canada

Under pressure in rapidly evolving settings, nurses can be relied upon to adapt, evaluate and make critical decisions for the patients whose lives rest in their hands.

May 9, 2022 — Unceded Algonquin Territory, Ottawa, Ontario — Indigenous Services Canada

Under pressure in rapidly evolving settings, nurses can be relied upon to adapt, evaluate and make critical decisions for the patients whose lives rest in their hands. With the unique healthcare challenges that present in often remote and isolated First Nations and Inuit communities, these skills can become a matter of life or death. 

On the first day of National Nursing Week and on Indigenous Nurses Day, the Honourable Patty Hajdu, Minister of Indigenous Services, announced the outstanding and extraordinary recipients of the 2022 Awards of Excellence in Nursing:

Lee Ann Sock, a proud Migmag from Elsipogtog First Nation who played an integral part in ensuring the community’s safety and wellbeing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hannah Gray, an Indigenous Services Canada (ISC) nurse in Sandy Lake First Nation with a love of the north and a dedication to creating an environment of integrity and learning in nursing stations.
Alexa Bisaillon, a passionate advocate for decolonized, trauma-informed healthcare and the right to self-determination as a cornerstone of Indigenous health, working in Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw First Nations.
Elizabeth Oguntuase, a lifelong learner providing healthcare to Inuit in Qikiqtarjuaq in a setting that fosters cultural fluency and cultural intelligence. 

Recipients have demonstrated the highest degree of commitment to their nursing practices through exceptional initiative, compassion and efforts. Frontline nurses in First Nations and Inuit communities who receive the award are nominated by peers and selected based on their sound judgement, professionalism and culturally safe healthcare work.

Nursing in First Nations and Inuit communities encompasses far more than medical services and procedures. In communities rich with diverse culture and traditions, these nurses recognize the necessity in respecting and understanding the people they serve. In doing so, many of them create lifelong connections and form a deep bond with communities. These relationships are integral to reconciliation and building trust within the healthcare system. 

To this year’s four recipients, and to all nurses who go above and beyond the call to care for those in need, we thank you for your steadfast support and endless contributions to keeping communities healthy. 

“Congratulations and thank you to Lee Ann Sock, Hannah Gray, Alexa Bisaillon, and Elizabeth Oguntuase for your remarkable commitment to improve health in First Nations and Inuit communities across the country. The COVID-19 pandemic made your already difficult work so much harder. Health leaders like you, so many nurses and all frontline workers were heroic in their dedication to keeping people safe. Thank you for all you do to lead and inspire others in your field.”

Singapore’s IMDA Awards Huawei Int’l Data Protection Trustmark Certification

Singapore – WEBWIRE



Singapore’s Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA) awarded their Data Protection Trustmark (DPTM) certification to Huawei International Pte.Ltd, Huawei’s subsidiary in Singapore.


The DPTM is given to businesses who have data protection regimes that are fully compliant with Singapore’s Personal Data Protection Act. To date, just over 80 companies have been awarded this certification. Huawei has long boasted their commitment to customer privacy protection. Receiving DPTM certification means IMDA has recognized the soundness and accountability of Huawei’s data protection practices related to data collection, use, and disclosure.


Foo Fang Yong, CEO of Huawei International, explained why this certification is particularly important to the company, saying “Personal data protection is not simply a legal requirement, it is a social responsibility. This certification underscores our commitment to privacy protection. Our consumers, customers, suppliers, partners, employees, and other relevant stakeholders can rest assured that their personal data is well protected. We are vigilant and have always adhered to all privacy and personal data protection laws and regulations in every jurisdiction in which we operate. We have incorporated privacy protection requirements into all our day-to-day business processes.”


Over the past two decades, Huawei has collaborated closely with local telecom operators in Singapore to assist in developing world-class network infrastructure, supported Singapore’s digitalization journey, and introduced a series of smart devices to Singapore consumers. As new technologies like cloud computing and big data mature and are further integrated into communications infrastructure, Huawei is ramping up its ability to provide stable, reliable, secure, and sustainable cloud services to local businesses. By establishing regional Asia Pacific headquarters in Singapore for its enterprise and cloud business, the company also aims to help more local businesses go digital and global. In particular, to tackle climate change, Huawei is also leveraging digital power technologies and working closely with local partners to support Singapore’s Green Plan 2030.


In addition to receiving DPTM certification, Huawei has also partnered with the Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) as one of its SG Cyber Safe Partnership Programme’s advocate partners. Through this program, Huawei works with the CSA to help businesses and organizations in Singapore to bolster their cybersecurity protections and boost cybersecurity awareness.
