Building Leadership

The Circle maintains a partnership with the Sandy-Saulteaux Spiritual Centre in Beasejour, Manitoba. This culturally based ministry training program, located on 36 acres of wooded parkland beside the Brokenhead River, prepares Aboriginal people in lay and ordered ministry and provides cross-cultural and spiritual awareness for the larger community.

Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls

Since the time of the Sisters in Spirit program, work continues to support the inquiry into the deaths and disappearance of many Indigenous women and girls across the country. Visit the Native Women’s Association of Canada website to download a fact sheet on missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.

The Aboriginal Ministries Circle also manages several community funds that support Indigenous initiatives.
