Mission, Vision & Values

Our mission statement explains why we exist and whom we exist for – our clients and the communities we serve. It encompasses an awareness of diverse populations, the broader society, the primary benefits we provide as well as the values held by our staff and volunteers.

Our mission is to provide culturally relevant holistic programs and services to equip our communities to achieve optimal health and well-being through awareness, health promotion and illness prevention.

Our vision statement explains where we see ourselves in the future. The communities we serve are at the center of this statement and it implies the work to be accomplished.

Our vision is to be an inclusive place where all are welcome to pursue an enrichment of their quality of life, health and wellness.

Our values are grounded in the Medicine Wheel and the Seven Grandfather Teachings. These include truth, respect, honesty, humility, wisdom, love and bravery.

We approach the client from the centre of their experience and we place them in the center of their healing process and address their body, mind, emotions and spirit. Our approach is holistic, that is:

  • We are honest with the client, retain what they share as confidential, and agree to be held accountable to the client, to our peers and Great Spirit. We act with integrity with all of our actions.
  • We share what we know without hesitation, integrated across disciplines. We strive to be accessible at all levels – physical, mental and spiritual. No one is turned away for any reason.
  • Our strength is lodged within a well-managed team of practitioners. We are comprehensive in our approach to health and wellbeing. Respect for our client and each other is unconditional and not dependent on something elicited by abilities, qualities, or achievements.
  • We strive to create an atmosphere of kindness, expressed as being open minded, having compassion for the journey of the other and grounded in a sense of safety.
