Anishnawbe Health Centre

June 22, 2021

Toronto Star – Anishnawbe Health Toronto’s Indigenous Health Centre broke ground on its new location in downtown Toronto. Its partners on the site include Miziwe Biik Training Institute for services around education and employment; a child-care and family centre operated by the city, a mixed-use condo building; a restored heritage building and a rental building.

The Indigenous community centre will be completed by 2022 and the remainder of the hub will be finished by 2024. The hub represents a place to celebrate with others, where Indigenous people can gather as a community…And there’s hope that the launch of the hub will inspire groups and businesses across Canada to partner with Indigenous communities to create spaces that will address the systemic discrimination Indigenous people face in Canada’s institutions.
