We are a group of Rotarians from Ottawa area Rotary clubs who have witnessed the work that the Wabano Aboriginal Health Centre does.  The Center’s primary purpose is to offer structured services and programs to improve the health and well-being of the Aboriginal community.

Rotarians for Wabano believe that everyone deserves a good start, an education, training opportunities, and a caring community of support.   Therefore, we will be helping to better the lives of some of the most vulnerable members of our community.

Wabano represents a progressive and successful model of how Aboriginals can work together to create a better future for Aboriginal people who live off reserve.  The outcomes of this impressive model go beyond the Aboriginal community to strengthen the Canadian fabric.

The reality in Canada today:

Wabano self-funds (i.e. does not receive government funding) for many of the cultural events and programs such as vocational counseling and outreach to the homeless. These programs are the cornerstone of Wabano’s unique model of care, providing the conditions for good health including pride in ancestry, cultural reclamation, peace, shelter, education, food, income, a stable environment, resources and social justice.

Our Rotarians for Wabano campaign goal is to raise $1.5 million to support the Social enterprise /Vocational area and programs.  This is a large campaign that is attainable with many little steps.

Our $1 / day program looks to generate 1500 donations at $1000 each.  Pledges can be fulfilled over 3 years. Donate online now.

Our campaign of $1.5 million will be the largest non-governmental contribution.

“This Campaign is a good example of how Rotarians can make a difference
when we reach across Club lines and work together.”

Former District Governor
