• Strangers in Our Own Land
    In 1978, the Ontario Federation of Indian Friendship Centres prepared a discussion paper aptly entitled, "Strangers in Our Own Land”.   The paper begins to address problems affecting "urban and migrating Native people" in Ontario and was presented to the Honourable Robert Welch, QC, Ontario Minister of Culture
  • Reinforcing the Sweetgrass Road
    In 1986, the OFIFC prepared a second discussion paper to revisit issues presented in the 1978 discussion paper, “Strangers in Our Own Land”.  “Reinforcing the Sweetgrass Road”  further addresses concerns facing Aboriginal peoples moving to Canada’s city centres.  It was presented to the Ontario Cabinet Committee on Native Affairs in response to a lapse in energy and effort since the 1978 discussion paper.  The paper describes the role of the Native Friendship Centres, long range strategic plans and priorities and potential interface with the policy framework on Urban Native Affairs of the Ontario Government at that time.
  • OFIFC FASD Toolkit for Indigenous Families
    This toolkit was prepared as a “user-friendly” resource to help frontline workers working with children, youth, adults, and families affected by Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.  It uses a Medicine Wheel to help front-line community workers explore issues, and find and apply appropriate tools and support, to address FASD at the community level.
