Support for the work of C.I.N.A. now comes from many quarters, both within the health community and Aboriginal organizations. Professional health groups such as the Canadian Association of University Schools for Nursing, the Canadian Public Health Association and the Indian and Inuit Health Committee of the Canadian Pediatric Society are active supporters of the work of C.I.N.A..
The Canadian Nurses Association, of which C.I.N.A. is now an affiliate, has been particularly supportive of C.I.N.A.'s ongoing efforts. The National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations has described C.I.N.A. as, "An invaluable source of support, information and technical expertise to First Nations communities across the country. In addition, the association both through role modeling and by direct promotional activities has encouraged substantial numbers of our young people to enter nursing and other health professions.
