Odawa Native Friendship Centre

Our Mission

To enhance the quality of life for Aboriginal people in the Capital region. To maintain a tradition of community, an ethic of self-help and development as well as to provide traditional teachings from our elders. These are important values we will continue to reinforce and promote in the coming years.

The Odawa Native Friendship Centre is a non-profit organization serving the Aboriginal community in the Ottawa-Carleton Region of Eastern Ontario and surrounding communities.

The Odawa Native Friendship Centre opened its doors to the community in August 1975. The Aboriginal population has grown in the Ottawa community and we have expanded our services to meet their needs. We are an organization which offers various programs and services to people of all ages and where "Everyone Is Welcome".

For over three decades now, Odawa's volunteers, Board of Directors, committee members and staff have worked diligently to ensure that we positively affect the quality of life for Aboriginal people in the Capital region. A tradition of community, ethnic self-help and development, as well as traditional teachings from our elders are important values, which we will continue to reinforce in the coming years.
