Oshki Kizis Lodge is operated by Minwaashin Lodge - Indigenous Women's Support Centre. We are a 21-bed shelter for First Nations, Inuit, and Métis women & children who are fleeing abuse. 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.
