The NCN Family and Community Wellness Centre was among the first facility of its kind to be established in Canada. It recognizes the strength of the Nisichawayasihk Cree Nation and how much we can accomplish by working together.
Promoting Holistic Community-based Wellness Activities
The Centre is a model of integrated service delivery and develops meaningful, effective programs that reflect our community values and beliefs. We provide a wide range of health and child and family services designed to support physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness from conception and birth through to adulthood and Elder care. Many services collaborate in a holistic approach to achieve improved wellbeing and health for individuals, families and our entire First Nation community.
Our professionals, Elders and volunteers deliver mandated child and family services with the goal of achieving family wellness and strong community. Our programs implement and oversee health-related services and assume leadership as a local health authority. In every way we can, our programs focus on Indigenous traditions, culture, customs and language.
From vaccinations to child and family services, from life-skills classes to daycare parties, we are promoting health and wellness awareness, empowering our citizens and encouraging safe environments as we move toward holistic wellness.
