Welcome to the
Brandon Friendship Centre
The Brandon Friendship Centre is an urban Indigenous service delivery agency. We exist to administer and implement programs to meet the needs of people, either migrating to cities or living in them. One way to describe a Centre is to compare it to a bridge. It attempts to bridge a gap between two cultures, between non-urban and urban.
We develop programs and support services to meet the needs of Indigenous people in the community as a whole.
Brandon Friendship Centre Inc.’s mission statement is “to provide programs and services to all people with an initial emphasis on Indigenous people”.
