Our Community Members are enjoying the nutritional snacks that our friends Gilbert .P Gourmot and ISA Foundation helped our STMMCM site with back in August.

These snacks help manage weight gain and restore electrolytes which is important when food insecurity is a reality. Providing nutritional foods is a great way to share the Love.

Reconciliation is a journey for all Canadians
We think it's crucial that opportunities exist for all Indigenous peoples to connect to their cultures, to heal in community and to have culturally competent care. Through our Indigenous Cultural Programming we’re committed to accessible reconciliation programming like our sharing circles program.

Our Volunteers are the foundation on which we build stronger communities! With their commitment to show up during a pandemic we were able to serve everyone affected by the closures.

Many of our long time committed volunteers are 55+ and are isolating due to Covid-19. We would like to thank our summer students and volunteers for their unwavering commitment during a pandemic.

We are so grateful for our excellent team. Thank you!
