Indigenous leadership, elders, officials, staff and citizens joined in with the celebration of the grand opening of the Keepers Of The Circle office and Mino M’Shkiki Health Centre on September 29 in Kirkland Lake.

Health leaders and advocates gathered at the Keepers Of The Circle Office in Kirkland Lake on September 29 for an open house event. This two part event was meant to showcase the newly renovated and completed Keepers Of The Circle office building and to host the official opening of the Mino M’Shki-ki Indigenous Health Team office.

“I am very happy and excited to see everyone who came to visit us today. This is the celebration of so much work by so many people over so many years. Our founder, the late Ann Batisse was a woman with a vision that started what we have today. What began as a one room office in 1997 with a handful of staff and volunteers has now become a nationally recognized Indigenous services hub that has helped and continues to assist so many people,” said Bertha Cormier, Executive Director of Keepers Of The Circle.
