Mission

tribal

To improve its members’ quality of life, the CEFC offers a range of quality services to Indigenous people living in or passing through Chibougamau. It does this by providing a culturally relevant and safe environment, by promoting an intercultural setting that highlights Indigenous culture and traditions to create and maintain connections with the greater public and by supporting Indigenous citizen participation in the city.
