In light of COVID-19, NWRCT has come to the very difficult decision to temporarily close its doors, postponing all programs and services until further notice. ​​NWRCT will continue to work diligently to monitor the situation and the needs of the community, and continue to reassess operations as required. NWRCT is committed to our community healing, thus our Traditional Healers are working remotely with clients as required. In addition to this, we recognize our services offer essential supports to those in need, thus, if you require support, referrals, or for any other inquiries please contact ed.admin@nwrct.ca for direction to a key management member of the Centre who will work remotely to address and meet your needs.
