The Centre is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors, some of whom are appointed by the city of Prince Albert and the balance elected from the Centre membership.

August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week. There is scientific evidence that shows that breast milk is the best food for babies during the early period of their lives. There are benefits for the baby, the mother, the family, the community and the environment.

Breast milk is served from the original container and is portable, and mothers’ milk does not need heated or cooled before a baby can take it.

DISCOVERING DIVERSITY IN LANGUAGE CLASS 2014

Hola!! Tan’si!!

Would you like to have fun learning a second language, such as Spanish or Cree? Did you know that Spanish is the third most spoken language in the world and that Cree is spoken by at least 24,000 people in Saskatchewan alone? Think of how great it would be to be able to chat with the locals when you go away to Latin America, or to understand Cree in Saskatchewan! Learning a second language can also open your mind to a new culture, and open the door to new employment opportunities!
