Our Team

We are a dynamic and supportive team from all sorts of backgrounds with one goal in mind: supporting one another, and our greater community.

The Friendship Centre Movement began to offer support and services to Indigenous peoples who were migrating from reserves into urban areas, and has grown to include all people. We hope to not only support and uplift our whole community, but to educate those who do not understand the ways of knowing, the culture, and experiences of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Our incredible team helps us to achieve some lofty goals we’ve set for ourselves!
