In recognition of the ever changing world in which we live, the United Native Friendship Centre is dedicated to enhancing the lives of Native and non-Native people in our community and surrounding area.
Its primary responsibility is to serve Aboriginal people with special services in the fields of social, educational and cultural development while, at the same time, building a bridge of understanding between Native and non-Native people.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The United Native Friendship Centre (UNFC) will have an interruption of services June 14-18, 2021, while we move to our new location at 427 Mowat Avenue. To ensure a timely transition, all programs and services will be halted during that week. The UNFC Board of Directors and staff thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to working with the community at our new location.
COVID-19 UPDATE - Under current Provincial COVID-19 guidelines, the UNFC remains closed to the public but staff is in-office to assist service users. Program Workers can meet with service users one-on-one outdoors following all COVID-19 safety protocols. We continue to monitor and abide by the COVID-19 Provincial, Federal and Northwestern Health Unit guidelines.
