How to Access

Our supports and services are culturally-based to address the mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional needs of Indigenous youth living either on- or off-reserve. If you are an Indigenous youth and you would like to access our services, please let your probation officer know.

The Probation Officer and/or the facility where the youth is currently living are responsible for contacting us.
