SKHC 2020 Annual General Meeting

 

The Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre is seeking nominations to the Board of Directors for:
– (2) TWO – COMMUNITY REPRESENTATIVES
– (1) ONE – YOUTH REPRESENTATIVE

SKHC is a family and has a sense of community.  I always look forward to our visits, whether it’s for Ginew’s checkups, or to connect with the Elders.  We are always welcomed and made to feel at home. We take full advantage of their programs, from boy’s drumming to the full moon ceremonies. I love my SKHC.

Shkagamik-Kwe is a place where my family can go for our health and well-being, as well as help us maintain our culture.

The Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre is very important to me along my journey of health.

As a transgender man, the Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre has been extremely respectful in acknowledging my wishes in starting my transformation from female to male.  The SKHC team has educated themselves on how to better support my community by enabling a few transgender services in Northern Ontario.  Miigwetch.

Building Healthy Communities | Respecting Traditional Values

Traditional Programs

In our efforts for cultural revitalization we are honoured to promote Culture as Treatment.  Our traditional program is the heart of the centre celebrating our maintenance and evolution in traditional healing practices.

Community Programs

The Centre offers an array of community programs tailored to our growing population.  Our community programs are delivered in a culturally safe environment,  free of judgement.  Make SKHC your home away from home.

Primary Care

SKHC encompasses a diverse inter-professional Primary Care team with a wide range of services.  The Primary Care team  works in partnership with the Traditional Program team. This unique relationhip enables the team to offer our clients high quality primary care  while encompassing traditional healing practices.
