The PAGC is an organization that is focused on enhancing skills and employability, as well as offering cultural teachings to the Indigenous community. They hope to give people a way to reconnect with their culture. For youth aged 16-30, they offer a variety of programs, including sports and recreation, cultural teachings, as well as language teachings such as Cree. They offer parenting courses for new parents, and also have a homeless shelter and can also provide driver education. Anyone can walk in to apply or apply online to use to the services that they provide. A common misconception is that the PAGC only serves the urban community, but they’d like everyone to know that they also strive to serve the community from out of town and surrounding area.
Their office hours are 8:30 am – 5 pm, Monday to Friday, and they can be contacted at 306-953-7200.
