The Hamilton Regional Indian Centre is a non-profit organization working with and for the urban Aboriginal population of the Greater Hamilton area. The Centre was created to meet the needs and provide a place where the urban Aboriginal population could get together to access and share their culture and traditions.

Our Centre is here to promote and deliver culturally appropriate programs. The programs encourage the urban Aboriginals to retain their culture and to become a part of society with full rights of independence. The Centre is here for the betterment of all Aboriginal people.
