What is a Friendship Center?
The Friendship Centre Movement–made up of over 100 Friendship Centres and 7 Provincial/Territorial Associations–is the largest and most comprehensive urban Indigenous service delivery network in Canada. Their collective work reaches millions of points of contact in a year and hundreds of thousands of people every single day from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
Friendship Centres provide culturally relevant programs and services for Indigenous people living in urban centres across Canada in multiple areas including, health, shelter, youth, justice and development. They have also become a place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to come together, to share traditions, and to learn from one another.
