The Hamilton Regional Indian Centre (HRIC) was formally incorporated on June 19, 1973 and became a member of the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC) in 1973.
Through the course of its history, the HRIC has gained and maintained credibility in the Aboriginal and non-aboriginal sector at large. The HRIC is constantly growing and expanding its operations to meet the ever-changing and growing needs of the Aboriginal community.
The HRIC is a member of the Hamilton Executive Directors’ Aboriginal Coalition (HEDAC) that focuses on interagency advocacy, inter-community networking, sharing and working together to address issues of mutual interest or concern (i.e. Homelessness & Affordable Housing, Education and Life Long Learning, Community Capacity Building, Economic Development, Justice, Health, and Arts and Culture).
