On April 28th, 1970, the Alberta Native Friendship Centres Association (ANFCA) became the first Provincial/Territorial Association to be incorporated. Since our inception, the ANFCA’s mandate has surged forward. Today we have one of the largest memberships in Canada: working in partnership with 20 Friendship Centres located in most major urban areas across Alberta building a future of wellness, equality and understanding for an urban Aboriginal population of more than 199,000.

Each of the 20 Friendship Centres is dedicated to providing culturally-based programs and services that respond to the distinct needs of urban Aboriginal people in their communities and bridging the gaps that occur between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal peoples in urban areas. In particular, Friendship Centres are recognized by government and community members for contributing to the revitalization of Aboriginal culture; developing greater awareness and understanding of Aboriginal peoples and their role in Alberta communities; and providing social, health, youth, children, employment, educational, community development cultural programming to Aboriginal people so that they may live more successfully in urban areas.
