Traditional Aboriginal Parents Program (TAPP)

This is an eleven-week traditional Aboriginal parenting program that is modeled around the Medicine Wheel. The program assists individual and family development through educational teachings, sharing personal stories, and learning of traditional Aboriginal culture.

Our main objective is to encourage personal healing; to find a balance between ones emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual well-being, and to facilitate personal awareness and growth.

The program is suitable for parents who wish to begin, or to continue upon their personal healing journey. Come and explore your culture, your relationships, and yourself.


During the 11-week set, the program runs every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9:30am – 2:00pm. Registration is on-going.
