Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls Awareness

 

The UNFC continues our efforts to raise awareness about Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.  We remember the people that have lost their lives to gender-based violence, not just for one day but all year long through the programs and services we offer.  The UNFC Wall of Rememberance is here for anyone to come and post a red dress in honour of a loved one.  Stop by the Centre at 427 Mowat Avenue.

 

My Records, My Choice Notice Program

The My Records, My Choice Notice Program is for former students of residential schools who had a claim in either the Independent Assessment Process (IAP), or the earlier Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) process. Specifically, about the former students’ rights to choose what happens with their IAP or ADR records.  This information is for former students, their families and the community.  For more information, call toll free, 1-877-635-2648 or email myrecordsmychoice@irsad-sapi.gc.ca

UNFC Message of Positivity and Kindness

We were challenged by the Sault Ste. Marie Friendship Centre to spread a message of kindness and we happily accepted! Our staff came together (seperately) to spread this message of positivity to our community and to all of our sister Friendship Centres across Canada. Please be kind to one another; a simple smile or act of kindness can turn someone's day around for the better. At this time we all need kindness, patience, understanding and positivity to keep our community, country and world a safe place for everyone.  View our message here UNFC Positivity & Kindness

Urban Indigenous Proud

In the winter/spring of 2018, the United Native Friendship Centre, Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres and the National Film Board of Canada came together and created a short film reflecting some of the programming we offer here at the UNFC.  We wish to thank the UNFC Board of Directors, staff, Elders and community members who participated.  We welcome you to view our film on the National Film Board of Canada's Indigenous Cinema site.  Click here.
