Understanding urban Indigenous realities is vital to effective public policy, legislative development and program and funding decisions. Friendship Centers assist with access to justice by providing urban Indigenous people with culturally safe and wraparound services. The National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) advocates for justice locally, provincially, nationally, and internationally.
