This inquiry explored the research question: How can the Fort St John Community Action Team (CAT) create a safe environment to ensure peer input? The Northern Health Authority acted as a partner in this research. This inquiry was grounded in community-based action research and action research engagement methodology. Following Royal Roads University Research Ethics Board (REB) approval and the Northern Health Authority Research Ethics and Operational approval, eight people with lived experience (peers) over the age of nineteen, within the community of Fort St John, were recruited to participate in journey mapping sessions and semi-structured interviews. In addition, eight members of the Community Action Team (CAT) participated in a focus group. Findings in this inquiry include information related to the barriers peers experience accessing services within the community, the importance of supportive services within the community, the importance of foundational relationships between community professionals and peers, and the importance of using a variety of engagement methods to gather input from peers. This inquiry adhered to the Royal Roads University and Northern Health Research Ethics policies.
