Shelter Services

Oshki Kizis Lodge is part of the Aboriginal Women's Support Centre - Minwaashin Lodge. We are a 19-bed shelter for First Nations, Inuit, and Metis women & children who are fleeing abuse. We recognize that Aboriginal women & children, families and communities have experienced abuse. We recognize that our people need culturally appropriate services to foster healing.

By empowering women, we assist them on their healing path to a safe & healthy place. We support the family unit holistically by showing awareness and respect for individual and cultural beliefs, spirituality and diversity.

  • Community support
