Prince Rupert Aboriginal Headstart (AHS) is a licensed preschool that is dedicated to the cultural needs of Prince Rupert and Port Edward children, with a focus on our Indigenous communities.
The program helps prepare children of Indigenous ancestry for elementary school, while also teaching them about their culture and language.
The Aboriginal Justice Initiative was established to consider and address the over-representation of Aboriginal people in conflict with the law.
It enables Aboriginal communities to have increased involvement in the local administration of justice and, where appropriate, provides alternatives to mainstream justice processes.

The Government of Canada’s Reaching Home: Homelessness Initiative is a community-based program that helps meet the needs of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness.
