Independent Counselling Enterprises is proud to provide support to many people of aboriginal heritage.
As a service provider we believe it is important for people to have opportunities to explore their heritage
In partnership with an aboriginal consultant we are striving to create connections and
resources within the aboriginal community. Our consultant plays an invaluable role in assisting people
to connect to the aboriginal culture by providing information and links to resources.
Some of the cultural
events and activities include: sweat lodge ceremonies, powwows, native healing ceremonies, cultural sharing including
traditional foods and the Lac Ste Anne Annual Pilgrimage.
For people whom have come from the northern
communities in Nunavut and Northwest Territories we are able to facilitate, with assistance from territorial
governments, visits from family members. The informal but important visits allow the opportunity for people
to reconnect with their families and home communities helping them feel closer to home.
