Tewegan provides a safe culture-based Aboriginal transition home to young women as they seek to acquire permanent, stable housing.


Our cultural teachings are our guiding principals for developing collaborative relationships and working together. We recognize and respect the uniqueness of each individual and work together for a common purpose.

  • Respect: Honour, politeness, truth, dignity and confidentiality
  • Community: Unity, culture, security, acceptance, non-judgment, creativity
  • Collaboration: Effective communication, personal growth, evolution
  • Integrity: Consistency, work ethics, accountability, honesty


All Aboriginal youth in Ottawa have access to safe, affordable housing.
