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 that Indigenous 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.
- To provide support, which incorporates both traditional and contemporary methods to meet the needs of all clients.
- To work as a team both internally and with the community at large, for society to better respond to the needs of Indigenous people.
- To provide advocacy and access to opportunities leading to economic independence.
- To create a supportive, welcoming and trusting environment for clients, staff and partnering organizations.
- To recognize and promote pride in Indigenous identity of First Nations, Métis and Inuit people and communities.
