SKHC is a family and has a sense of community.  I always look forward to our visits, whether it’s for Ginew’s checkups, or to connect with the Elders.  We are always welcomed and made to feel at home. We take full advantage of their programs, from boy’s drumming to the full moon ceremonies. I love my SKHC.

Shkagamik-Kwe is a place where my family can go for our health and well-being, as well as help us maintain our culture.

The Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre is very important to me along my journey of health.

As a transgender man, the Shkagamik-Kwe Health Centre has been extremely respectful in acknowledging my wishes in starting my transformation from female to male.  The SKHC team has educated themselves on how to better support my community by enabling a few transgender services in Northern Ontario.  Miigwetch.
