Aboriginal people living or in transit in Val-d’Or, general population and tourists.
Self-financed, this service aims to generate surplus to maintain and develop the services that are offered to the community.
In 1974, the Native people assert their presence and acquire more visibility in Val-d’Or. In this period, the James Bay Agreement is recently signed and the Algonquins establish their Tribal Council. The Centre sets up lodging services for the Aboriginal people that are in transit. Since then, this service has never ceased to develop and the construction of an annex in 2002 permitted the addition of eight new rooms.
SCOPE OF ACTIVITIES
The Lodging Service is for Aboriginal people in priority, but all these services are also offered to the general population.
