Ooknakane Friendship CentreOur Impact Why We Exist

The Ooknakane Friendship Centre is under the Umbrella of the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC) which is a network of 118 Friendship Centres (FC) and seven Provincial and Territorial Associations (PTAs) across Canada. FC are Canada’s most significant off-reserve Indigenous service delivery infrastructure and are the primary providers of culturally enhanced programs and services to urban Indigenous residents. For over half-a-century, FC have been facilitating the transition of Indigenous people from rural, remote and reserve life to an urban environment. For many Indigenous people, Friendship Centres are the first point of contact to obtain referrals to cultural based socioeconomic programs and services.
