The Prince Albert Urban Indigenous Coalition (PAUIC) was formed in 2017 through a participatory process. Over 80+ Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations and community members come together on a monthly basis to:
Heal and reconcile; and
Address the unique challenges in Prince Albert.
The PAUIC typically hosts gatherings once a month. Each gathering, an Elder or Knowledge Keeper from different nations and the Métis is invited to share a teaching with our Coalition. Other guests and presenters are also invited to share with the Coalition.
Janet Carriere, Executive Director of the Prince Albert Indian and Métis Friendship Centre and Dawn Robins, Executive Director of the West Flat Citizens Group Inc. are the co-hosts for the PAUIC. Prairie Wild Consulting Co. has been assisting with the coordination.
Key Priorities of the Coalition include:
Inter-Agency Development – Coalition Participant Capacity Development (Getting to Know Each Other);
Cultural Awareness and Events;
Coordinate Community Action Plan; and
Coalition efforts are supported by the Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples Program through Indigenous Services Canada and many other supports provided by local organizations.
Everyone is welcome to participate in the PAUIC!
