PHS is excited to share with you our new website. We hope you find everything you're looking for - and more - check back often for updates, news and highlights about the work we do to support the community we serve.
In 2010, PHS launched Indigenous Health Services to address the social determinants of health.
PHS works with Indigenous harm reduction leaders in a movement called Culture Saves Lives to address the needs for cultural and spiritual care, reconnecting or helping people to connect for the first time to traditional, spiritual and cultural practices.
This combines culture and harm reduction with core programming that includes healing circles, smudging, drumming, singing, traditional dances, feasts, sweat lodge ceremonies, drum-making workshops, honouring ceremonies and memorials for Indigenous people. It includes access to Elders and traditional medicines, peer support and links to housing, nutrition and healthcare.
