The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) represents over 100 Friendship Centres and Provincial/Territorial Associations (PTA) from coast-to-coast-to-coast that make up the Friendship Centre Movement.
There are more Friendship Centres than we represent, and we have listed them all on the above map; member Friendship Centre pins are in blue, PTAs are yellow and non-member Friendship Centres/PTAs are grey.
The Friendship Centre Movement is the country’s most significant off-reserve Indigenous service delivery infrastructure. For over half a century Friendship Centres have helped urban Indigenous people access the vital services they need to succeed in urban settings across Canada. Friendship Centres understand the challenges facing our communities and their unique “wrap-around” service delivery model ensures we are well equipped to tackle them.
Across the country, Friendship Centres provide culturally appropriate services for Indigenous people living in urban centres and have become a place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to come together, to share traditions and to learn from one another.
