Agency Information
Description (Agency) The Can-Am Indian Friendship Centre (CAIFC) of Windsor was incorporated on June 8, 1981 and became a member of the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC) in October 1981. The centre‚Äôs founding members are Maryrose Barefoot Jones, Max Joseph Hedley, Abraham Tanian Pone, Candace Elaine Moore, Peter Nahwegahbo, Peter Evans Wickerson, Donna Florence Loyal, Sharon Ann John, and Kathleen Anne McCloskey. 
The CAIFC is driven by the desire for Aboriginal peoples within the areas of Windsor and Essex County to become a self-sufficient, self-determining, self-governing community. Historically, the CAIFC has been the focal point for Aboriginal peoples within the urban environment. As of today, the Friendship Centre develops a multitude of programs and services that encompass the cultural, economic, social, and political objectives of the urban Aboriginal community.
