How the Dze L K’ant Friendship Centre is serving our community during COVID-19


The Dze L K’ant Friendship Centre provides a number of quality services to the Aboriginal community. These services support people on their journey to become more self-sufficient and self-reliant. The Friendship Centre also dedicates time and resources to promoting awareness among Aboriginal people. Cultural pride, cultural identity, and confidentiality are the pillars of our organization.

Here at the Friendship Centre we strive to provide an environment where all Aboriginal people can belong. Whether you are a youth, elder, adult, or mother-to-be – in need of confidential assistance for major road blocks in your life or are simply looking for ways to improve your life skills – everyone is welcome at the Friendship Centre. We are a non-judgemental community with only acceptance in mind.

Please feel free to visit our site to learn more about the services we provide to our local community and the region. If you feel that our services could benefit you or someone close to you, please feel free to contact us. Our doors are always open at the Dze L K’ant Friendship Centre – we are waiting to hear from you.
