Counselling Services

Many of the difficulties faced by our clients are the result of the Residential School legacy and the intergenerational impacts.  Counselling occurs within the context of cultural beliefs and values to ensure a holistic approach is used as part of the healing journey.

Culture Program

Women of all ages come to our lodge to learn about their culture and identity. Many women are coming back to the circle and the drum. Women are gathering teachings, sacred items, stories and songs to put in their medicine bundles.

Employment Readiness

The Employment Readiness Program is modeled on the teachings of the Medicine Wheel. It is a traditional, Aboriginal program to find meaningful work and/or training. This program is making a difference and continues to be one of Minwaashin's strongest programs.
