EAGLE Urban Transition Centre

The EAGLE Urban Transition Centre (EUTC) was created by the Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs in 2005. The primary goal of the EUTC is to act as a culturally relevant and non-discriminatory gateway for Indigenous people transitioning into an urban centre. The EUTC office is focused on providing a single window from which clients receive support, advocacy and access to needed programs in their efforts to achieve independent living.

EUTC believes thatIndigenous people experiencing transitional issues should have access to resources that support a healthy balanced life and wellness in the areas of: physical, mental, spiritual and emotional.


  • To improve the quality of life for Indigenous people and their families in an urban environment.
  • To provide holistic support, which covers the four aspects of the individual: physical, emotional, mental and spiritual.

Eagle’s Nest

The Eagle Urban Transition Centre (EUTC) continues to operate the Eagle’s Nest Project as a resource for Indigenous youth who are out-of-school and unemployed.

The Eagle’s Nest project activities are delivered at St. John’s Leisure Centre at 601 Aikins Avenue in Winnipeg’s North End. The City of Winnipeg has been a tremendous supporter contributing to the success of the Eagle’s nest.

The objective of the Eagle’s Nest is to assist 60 Indigenous youth annually toward personal and professional goals that will ultimately see them gain the confidence to return to school or obtain employment.

The Eagle’s Nest Program provides professional and personal skill development opportunities for Indigenous youth between the ages of 15-30, who are not enrolled in school or who are currently unemployed.

Program delivery is guided by the four quadrants of the medicine wheel (Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, & Mental) and is delivered in a holistic manner to empower Indigenous youth.
