Grande Prairie Aboriginal Circle of Services is an inter-agency group that works in partnership to strategically plan,to strengthen the services for Aboriginal people in the city of Grande Prairie and area.


Our mission is to find solutions that honor and respect Aboriginal people’s culture, traditions, heritage, values and beliefs. We believe the value to membership and the Community includes:

  • An understanding of the Aboriginal Community is brought to the general public. The general public can tap into the Aboriginal community for information, education, assistance, etc.
  • Grande Prairie Aboriginal Circle of Services is a forum for bringing Aboriginal issues to community agencies.
  • Aboriginal people have a united voice.
  • Aboriginal ways of helping are valued and utilized.
  • Aboriginal community leaders are identified and can be called upon to provide service.
  • Member agencies can provide better services through networking.
  • Service providers have support through sharing and networking.
  • Access to services is improved – more effective and more efficient.
  • Resources in the community are identified and better utilized.
  • Member agencies and organizations have opportunities to showcase and share their services and resources.
  • Grande Prairie Aboriginal Circle of Services affirms that the Aboriginal community has solutions and the capacity to deal with their issues in a way that is culturally appropriate.

Membership is open to any individual, agency, organization or group that delivers services to the Aboriginal population or wishes to network with these service providers. It is the aim of the Grande Prairie Aboriginal Circle of Services to be inclusive rather than exclusive. We meet monthly on the fourth Tuesday of each month at Grande Prairie Museum.
