“The Nawican Friendship Centre is an important asset to the community of Dawson Creek, providing many important services in our community,” says Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom. “This $42,000 gaming grant will help support their hot food program and recognizes their dedication to our community.”

The Centre received $42,000 in 2011/2012, which was an increase from their previous funding.
 
The Nawican Friendship Centre was incorporated in 1971 with the intention of bridging the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the region. It provides counselling, information, resources, guidance and programs, including the hot meals program.
