Indigenous Culture and Wellness Centre: The Journey Begins

“Nothing about us without us” 

In 2015, the Mayor’s Task to EndPovertyEdmonton (EPE) talked with many Indigenous Peoples.   Those involved wanted a place to gather, receive services and celebrate. Action #1 of the EndPovertyEdmonton Road Map is: “to design and plan an Indigenous Culture and Wellness Centre.”
