Each child, youth and family within the Nations of Treaty 8 are healthy, safe and supported to reach their full potential.
Providing culturally relevant services that make connections to the culture, language, beliefs and traditions of the First Nations communities within Treaty 8.
In 2016, the Treaty 8 Chiefs of Alberta unanimously adopted a motion to establish the Treaty 8 Urban Office. Our organization was created to serve Treaty 8 families both on and off reserve.
The Chiefs believe that Treaty 8 families should be served by Treaty 8 people, who know their languages, customs, traditions, land base, protocols, beliefs, and values. This is built into every program and service we offer.
We are proudly part of the Treaty 8 First Nations of Alberta family and as such, are directly accountable to the Chiefs of Treaty No. 8 [Alberta]. As each Chief is your elected leader, we recognize their sovereignty when it comes to their Nation and their children. We cannot do the work we do without recognizing that they hold the ultimate decision making authority when it comes to their families.
