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.
Deer Lodge Dance Hall Presents: The Roaring 20s
As you may have heard, the Deer Lodge Centre Foundation (DLCF) is holding a gala event in the evening on September 29, 2022. The event, Deer Lodge Dance Hall Presents: The Roaring 20’s, will be held on the 1st and 2nd floor of Main Street and is expected to bring in donors from all across Winnipeg to raise funds for improvements to our Courtyard. On the day of the event, Main Street will be transformed into a public space and will be converted back to a health facility space after the event is over.
We want to minimize the disruption to patients, residents, visitors and staff. Please plan for the changes that can be expected on September 29, 2022:
National Day for Truth & Reconciliation
September 30, 2022
Everyone is encouraged to wear orange in recognition of National Day for Truth & Reconciliation on September 30th. 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. As part of our ongoing commitment to reconciliation and improving health care experiences and services for Indigenous patients, their families and communities, it’s important that we bear witness to and honour the victims and survivors of residential schools, as well as reflect on the ongoing impact of the lived experience and shared history of residential schools on Indigenous peoples.
