What is Miskanawah?

Miskanawah (meaning "Pathways" in Cree) is our philosophical framework that is rooted in Indigenous teachings, ceremonies and guidance from Elders. These traditional values and beliefs have tremendous healing potential and are embedded within our service delivery practices. As its name implies, this approach assists individuals and families in building pathways to and within the community, strengthening their natural supports, and engaging in healthier ways of living.

We provide opportunities to take part in smudging, talking circles, sweat lodge ceremonies, cultural classes, a Round Dance and special ceremonies and celebrations to our clients, members of the community, and other groups like schools or businesses.
