BY THE CANADIAN PRESS, Jun 27, 2022 3:25 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Alberta's health delivery agency says it has reached out to ``trauma-informed physicians'' to provide support to Indigenous people who may be triggered by the Pope's visit next month.

In a series of tweets, Alberta Health Services says it is committed to providing care to all attendees of the Papal visit, including the Indigenous survivors and their families, who the Pope will be addressing.

The Pontiff's visit will start in Edmonton on July 24th and end in Iqaluit on July 29th, and his itinerary includes a stop at the site of a former residential school in Maskwacis (MASK-wah-cheez), south of Edmonton.
