Indian Friendship Centre (Sault Ste. Marie) logo

The Indian Friendship Centre (IFC) in Sault Ste. Marie was incorporated on March 30, 1972, and became a member of the Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC) on February 25, 1973.

The need to expand the IFC building, which was occupied since 1995, due to increases in programs and services to a growing urban population, led to the addition of the newly constructed hall on June 16, 2003. Today, the IFC has four locations in Sault Ste Marie: 122 East Street, 268 Wellington Street W, 376-378 Queen Street, and 188 Kohler Street. All staff full and part time actively participates on internal committees, while the majority of staff serve on external job-related boards and committees, locally and provincially. As well, some have chosen to volunteer their personal time for other endeavors in the area.
