The Friendship Centre Movement
Nistawoyou Association Friendship Centre – Est. 1964
The Friendship Centre Movement began in the mid-1950s when local groups were formed across Canada to represent the interests of Indigenous peoples migrating from outlying reserves and Métis Settlements to urban areas.
Established in 1964, Fort McMurray’s local Friendship Centre provides programs and services for Indigenous people living in the Wood Buffalo region. It’s also a place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to come together, share traditions and learn from one another. As part of the National Association of Friendship Centres, Nistawoyou Association Friendship Centre is one of a network of over 100 associations in Canada.
