Manitoba’s only Urban Indigenous Community Health Agency

Providing Heart work in Action through Wrap Around Care

Our Vision

All Indigenous people in Winnipeg have equitable access to culturally and community-based resources and supports that they (as individuals, families, and communities) need to attain and maintain health, wellness, and wellbeing.

Our Mission

To provide Indigenous people in Winnipeg with quality healthcare, social support services and other supports that:

  • incorporate a holistic understanding of and approach to health and wellness;
  • bring together the best of conventional and Indigenous medical practice, knowledge, and resources; and
  • empower and equip our community members to take more control of their own health, wellness, and wellbeing.

Our Values

The Aboriginal Health and Wellness Centre of Winnipeg, Inc. approaches its work from an Indigenous worldview, which understands that an individual members’ wellness reflects our community’s wellness and our wellbeing, as individuals and as a community, is connected to all people and all things, based on the medicine wheel teachings.

We believe that Indigenous peoples have the right to place-based services, as well as an inherent right to our own health and wellness practices, as stated in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We believe that all people have inherent value and worth that should be honoured.
