Traditional Territories Acknowledgement

Deer Lodge Centre is located and provides health services on original lands of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. We respect the Treaties that were made on these territories, we acknowledge harms and mistakes, and we dedicate ourselves to move forward in partnership with First Nation, Métis and Inuit people in a spirit of reconciliation and collaboration.

Indigenous Health – Orange Shirt Day – September 30

Each September 30, Canadians are called upon to wear orange in acknowledgement of the harmful legacy of residential schools, and to create awareness and honour the healing journey of victims, survivors and their families.

This year, in recognition of National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, customized “Every Child Matters” shirts will be available through Indigenous Health.

Each year, proceeds from the sale of these shirts support a deserving community not-for-profit organization providing services to Indigenous Manitobans.

Pre-sale orders available July 28-August 18, 2022.

Masks continue to be required…

Across Manitoba, health-care facilities and health-care workers continue to provide care and services to patients, residents and clients, including many who are at increased risk of severe illness if they become infected with COVID-19.

With planned changes to public health orders effective March 15, 2022, masks will continue to be required (and must be worn) by everyone at Deer Lodge Centre.

While we are all looking forward to a return to “normal”, it has been determined that wearing a mask helps to prevent the spread of COVID-19 among our staff and the vulnerable people we serve. 

Thank you for your cooperation at we work together to keep everyone at DLC safe.
