Native Friendship Centre of Montreal Inc.

Serving the Urban Indigenous Community since 1974

Brief Description

For over 40 years the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal Inc. (NFCM) has provided continuous quality services to the urban Indigenous population of Montreal and their families and is the only comprehensive service and referral point in the Greater Montreal Area (GMA) in relation to health, social services, legal, orientation/information, education, training, and employment referral for those migrating to or through the city including those from across Quebec, Canada, and the Americas.

Development Agency

The Native Friendship Centre of Montreal is a non-profit, non-sectarian, autonomous community development agency whose principal mission is to promote, develop, and enhance the quality of life in the urban Indigenous community of Montreal.

Bridging the Gap

The NFCM, being a part of a national initiative that bridges the gap between 2 cultures, serves the Indigenous population consisting of the ten First Nations of Quebec, as well as the Inuit and Métis of Montreal.


The ten First Nations of Quebec include the Cree, Mi’qmaq, Naskapi, Algonquin, Montagnais, Abenaki, Mohawk, Attikamekw, Huron and Malecite. NFCM provides the services of an urban Indigenous Centre, where people from across Quebec, Canada, and the Americas seek support and referral services in Montreal.


Through its programs, activities, and services the NFCM aims to uplift the quality of life of the urban Indigenous population of Montreal, as well as those migrating to or in transition through the city by safeguarding their health, social, and legal conditions and by assisting these individuals in the achievement of their dignity and their quality of life.
