Ontario provides funding to the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres to deliver:
- the Akwe:go Urban Aboriginal Children’s Program for children ages 7-12 and
- the Wasa-Nabin Urban Aboriginal Youth Program for youth ages 12-18.
The Akwe:go and Wasa-Nabin programs:
- Address the mental, physical and emotional health of children and youth in culturally relevant ways.
- Provide children and youth with supports that develop their ability to make healthy lifestyle choices.
Akwe:go is a Mohawk word meaning "everybody" or "all of us". Wasa-Nabin means "to look forward, to look beyond" in Ojibway.
