Our Values - Kepmite’taqnn

We believe in - Ketlamsitmek::

  • Placing the needs of children and youth first;
  • The seven sacred teachings – courage, humility, honesty, love, respect, truth and wisdom;
  • First Nations peoples, as the original peoples of this country and as self-determining peoples, have Treaty, constitutional and human rights that must be recognized and respected;
  • There must be a more equitable and inclusive society created by closing the gaps in social, health , and economic outcomes that exist between First Nations and non-First Nations Canadians;
  • The perspectives and understandings of Aboriginal Elders as Traditional Knowledge Keepers of the ethics, concepts, and practices of developing healthy children, youth and families is vital to stronger families and communities;
  • Supporting Aboriginal peoples’ cultural revitalization and integrating Indigenous knowledge systems, oral histories, laws, protocols, and connections into our programs and services are essential.
  • Affirming and valuing our staff, care providers, clients, and volunteers;
  • Demonstrating excellence, leadership, teamwork, and innovation.
