We have a permanent educational exhibit, developed in partnership with the Legacy of Hope Foundation to provide students and community an opportunity to learn about history through the eyes of Aboriginal people.

Our innovative programs incorporate traditional Aboriginal cultural practices, sharing the stories, ceremonies and teachings that were lost during the history of colonization and the residential school program. Our Traditional parenting, healing with culture and supporting children and youth programs are examples of best practices we are sharing across the nation.
