History

The Saskatoon Indian and Métis Friendship Centre (SIMFC) is a non-political, autonomous and a non-profit organization that was incorporated in 1968. It is a part of the Friendship Centre Movement which is representative of 120 Friendship Centres from across Canada. 

In the 1970's The SIMFC moved from a location on 20th street to the current location on Wall Street, where they purpose built the current facility to meet the unique needs of the Aboriginal community. 

Over the years the SIMFC has offered many types of programming that included boxing, sports, cultural activities along with important services that meet the needs of families and individuals alike. 

As over 50% of Aboriginal People live in urban enviroments, and Saskatoon has a current Aboriginal Population of more than 27,000 the Saskatoon Indian and Metis Friendship Centre serves as a Gathering place where Aboriginal people can be culturally engaged and connected to community. The legacy of bringing people together and the SIMFC being your home fire away from home continues to this day.
