Mission Statement

Ts’ewulhtun Health Centre promotes a strong, healthy community.  In the spirit of cooperation, from the wisdom of our elders, we will put into practice traditional and non-traditional ways to achieve an emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical well-being.
 

Health care programs are funded by First Nations Health Authority, and long-term care services are funded by Aboriginal Affairs Northern Development Canada (AANDC).  Funding for other programs and services comes from the Band’s own-source revenue and provincial grants for youth.
