Urban Services John E. MacDonald Building
Preparation meets opportunity
The Prince Albert Grand Council Urban Services Centre Inc. is an incorporated entity as are the community based organizations in the city of Prince Albert. Since the relocation of the department to 3601 – 5th Avenue East, we have realized the major transportation barrier in the city, with support from our partners we intend to do more community outreach and set up a sub office in the former location.
PAGC Urban Services has expanded on its overall direction by establishing effective working relationships with: other internal PAGC Departments; creating more linkages between On and Off-Reserve programs and services; and by establishing effective partnerships with community based organizations and agencies within the City of Prince Albert, SK. This has provided the opportunity to offer a greater array of services to clients in areas that pertain to youth, adults and families deemed at risk.
Urban Aboriginal Strategy
Is a 4 year initiative with a committee of Community members at large there will be the opportunity to access funds to enhance our programming at the Centre and offer supports to our clientele in need. Priorities for funding will be fleshed out at the community consultation being planned for September 2008.
