CCAY - Hinton Friendship Centre

The Hinton Friendship Centre is a family true to it’s Aboriginal roots, generous in spirit, serving the community as a whole.

The Hinton Friendship Centre is an Aboriginal non-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life of Aboriginal people in an urban environment.

 The Hinton Friendship Centre Society strives to develop strength, pride, hope, and mutual respect through the delivery of programs, services, facilities, and community awareness by being respectful of Aboriginal teachings.


History of Friendship Centres

The Friendship Centre Movement began in the mid-1950s to represent the interests of the increasing number of Aboriginal people migrating from reserves into urban areas. Initially, Friendship Centres were a referral service and as demand grew they began offering other services to help Aboriginal people adjust and thrive more successfully in their new urban environment. Since 1972, Friendship Centres across Canada have been funded by the federal government through the Aboriginal Friendship Centres Program (AFCP). There are 115 Friendship Centres across Canada and 20 in Alberta.

Harry Collinge High School,

The core values of Harry Collinge High School are respect, responsibility and compassion.

HCHS first opened in 1957 as Hardisty School. In the spring of 1958 the school graduated its first class, was greatly expanded, and in 1959 was renamed Harry Collinge High School in memory of Harry Collinge, the first resident manager of North Western Pulp and Power, the precursor to West Fraser. Today the school provides instruction to 550 students from Grades 8 to 12 in both English and French Immersion classes.

Harry Collinge High School colors are green and gold, and the athletic teams are called the Rockies. Our mascot is Howler, a wolf who symbolizes our school spirit and commitment to living in harmony with each other and our natural environment. Our three core values are Respect, Responsibility and Compassion.
