What does Walgwan mean?

The word means ''rainbow'' in the Mi’gmaq language and represents the diversity of our clients, the Nations we serve, and the approaches we take to help the youth along their healing journey.

Grief & Loss During the Pandemic

The COVID-19 pandemic has cut off access to cultural practices and has exacerbated grief and loss within First Nations communities. Indigenous Knowledge and culture-based practices will support communities and families in addressing unresolved grief.

We invite you to share your thoughts in a survey to help identify guidance needed from Elders, Cultural Practitioners, and Youth. Results from this survey will guide the content for brief stories and teachings, presented in print, pdf, and video.

Please on the following link in order to access the survey: Grief-and-Loss
