Since 1988, Miskanawah (former Pathways Community Services) has led the effort to support vulnerable children and youth in a holistic way throughout Calgary and the surrounding area.  We are a leader in the social services field working from a harm-reduction and strength-based perspective, with a focus on Indigenous traditions.


Children, youth and families thrive within a culturally responsive community.


Guided by Indigenous teachings, Pathways provides evidence-informed supportive services to people in the Calgary area as they strengthen their circles of self, family, community, and culture.

The City of Calgary & Koko’sinooniks (All Our Children) & Dover Niitsitapi Kids

We are pleased to welcome the City of Calgary as our community partner. 

The City of Calgary will be providing a community based program at the Niitsitapi Learning Centre that focuses on building positive relationships and cultural awareness in our participants.

Each week, they will have a different theme to enhance the overall program experience of participants. Many activities will have an indigenous focus in connection to our four program pillars: Courage, bravery, compassion and determination.

Activities, crafts and games will occur on a daily basis in order to promote and build self-confidence and a sense of community.

The City of Calgary also offers an after school program for students on Fridays from 12:00-2:00 PM. Please contact Renee Walker (403) 300-3067 for enrollment information.

Thank You

Thank you to our generous sponsors who make this work possible:
