Prince Albert, Saskatchewan
The mission of the Prince Albert Indian and Métis Friendship Centre is to improve the quality of life for Indigenous people in the city of Prince Albert.
The Prince Albert Indian Metis Friendship Centre was established in 1963 to work with Aboriginal and Metis families moving in from a rural or reserve area to the City of Prince Albert. Today the Centre continues to work with families in a Cultural and Supportive role. The Indian Metis Friendship Centre of Prince Albert is governed by a ten member board of directors.
Prince Albert is the third-largest city in Saskatchewan, Canada, after Saskatoon and Regina. It is situated near the centre of the province on the banks of the North Saskatchewan River. The city is known as the “Gateway to the North” because it is the last major centre along the route to the resources of northern Saskatchewan
