Mission

tribal

The Centre d’amitié autochtone de La Tuque is an urban service hub, a gathering place and a cultural anchoring space for Indigenous people. It actively contributes to Indigenous social, community, economic and cultural development through innovative and proactive strategies. Over the years, the Friendship Centre has become an incubator of major initiatives and numerous partnerships to meet the varied needs of urban Indigenous people, specifically in La Tuque and, since 2013, in Trois-Rivières.
