Friendship Centres have been active in Saskatchewan since 1963 and since then the movement has grown within Saskatchewan to encompass 10 Friendship Centres who are part of the 125-member National Association of Friendship Centres.
The AFCS advocates for and represents Saskatchewan’s Friendship Centres. Friendship Centres can be found all over the province from North to South, and West to East Saskatchewan.
Although still very young, the AFCS is proving to have a very bright future with its growing team of hard working staff.
The Aboriginal Friendship Centres of Saskatchewan will work together in harmony and will be the support agency of choice for all Aboriginal people.
