Welcome to The Village

This world class health and wellness facility is a ground-breaking approach to educating the next generation of our country's health professionals. It is the first facility of its kind in Canada. It blends Indigenous, Eastern and Western practices, and offers student led clinics, custom built classrooms, and a traditional Indigenous ceremony space.

The Village fosters a spirit of collaboration that enhances the delivery of community-based services while inspiring a new ideal for holistic care and healing - across all life stages - that can be adopted by communities across the country.
