About Us

KAFS was established in 1972 and is charitable organization with a status free open-door policy. We encourage everyone to drop into our location, meet our friendly staff and learn more about our programs. The Kamloops Aboriginal Friendship Society is dedicated to empowering the Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal communities of Kamloops and surrounding areas.

Our Mission is to provide and promote culturally based, inclusive programs, supports and activities to enhance holistic well-being and pride in Urban Aboriginal Peoples.

The Vision of the Elders, members, Board of Directors, Executive Director, and staff has resulted in useful programs and services for urban Natives offered by the Friendship Society. The goals and objectives of the Society still remain flexible so as to be responsive to the ever-changing needs of the urban Aboriginal community.

The KAFS logo represents native and non-native people working in unison to improve the
quality of life for Aboriginal people. The four feathers represent the colors of all the Nations from around the world.
