Reception, Administration, Finance, Maintenance and Special Projects – Restoration of Identity

The Core Sector is responsible for the administration, finance, policy development and corporate maintenance of the Centre, in addition to the day-to-day activities ensuring that the goals, mandate and direction are realized, as directed by the Board of Directors.

Core is staffed by the Capacity Development Officer who acts a Finance Manager and resource to the Sector Management Team; the Info-Coordinator, Finance Accountant, Finance Administrator, and Maintenance Manager, and supported by the Board Designate, who is assigned by the Board of Directors. This sector is funded by a variety of sources namely, the Aboriginal Friendship Centre Core Program (AFCP), a federal program of Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC), managed by the National Association of Friendship Centres (NAFC), in addition to management fees and funds generated through the rental of our facility, catering service and event coordination.

Over the past twelve months this Sector has interacted with 6,960 individuals and groups who have come through our doors. These visitors come from elementary, secondary, post-secondary and private schools; Church and Religious groups; non-aboriginal agencies and businesses; other regional Friendship and Cultural Centers; individuals and/or groups from First Nation communities, Tribal Councils and agencies; government officials; tourists, advocacy groups with like minded goals and objectives; out of country visitors keen to learn who we are, our community, our programs & services and our history as Indigenous people. We also have expanded a working relationship with external agencies and groups interested in the use of our facilities through rental arrangements, in hosting workshops, launch movies and hosting of larger meetings.
