The De dwa da dehs nye>s Aboriginal Health Centre, which offers a mix of traditional healing and western medicine, has outgrown its existing facilities. Capital planning campaigns for Hamilton and Brantford were officially launched at events in the two cities in early May. It is hoped that some of the funding for the multi-million dollar project will come from the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care. The centre is planning a community feedback session for late June and expects to submit a proposal to the ministry as early as the end of July. The centre services roughly 1,500 clients a year in everything from primary health care to spiritual healing and mental health and addiction services.
