We are so thrilled and humbled to be the 2015 recipients of Action Canada’s Sexual Health & Rights Fred and Helen Bentley award for our QOM,QEM SLANI clinic. The clinic began with an interest expressed by the local Indigenous community leaders and health service employees to expand on site programs within the Tsawout First Nations health care centre specializing in sexual health. We are lucky enough to partner with Tsawout First Nation to provide culturally sensitive sexual health care to members of any of the four Saanich First Nations.  We welcome all members of Tsawout, Tsartlip, Tseycum, and Pauquachin First Nations to use our services.

We are incredibly proud to be part of aboriginal health care providers on the Peninsula and like any non-profit have a team of people to acknowledge:

We're so proud to be recognized by Action Canada for our work with Saanich First Nations at the QOM,QEM SLANI clinic.
