Welcome To Riverton & District Friendship Centre
The Friendship Centre was designed as meeting space where individuals and community groups could get together informally. It provided a place where Canadians of different cultures could meet periodically and in doing so come to understand each other much better. It was to provide services and programs to the community and assist migrating native people as they traveled through Riverton or came to settle in Riverton. Learn more
      History of Riverton & District Friendship Centre
In 1977, the Riverton Drop In Centre was established under a Federal employment grant. It operated out of a commercial building on Main Street (shared premises with the offices of the Provincial Natural Resources department). In 1979 the Drop-In Centre was then funded through transitional LEAP (Local Employment Assistance Program). In 1981 the centre then became a “satellite” centre attached to the Selkirk Friendship Centre with Selkirk doing the administrative work. The local employees at the time, Marilyn Andruschak and Shelly Bjornson focused their efforts on providing a multitude of programs and services for the community. Learn more
