Overview of Kinoondidaa’gamig

 

In October 1, 2006 Aundeck Omni Kaning First Nation received a license to operate a 5 bed  co-ed, Treatment Home located on the Aundeck Omni Kaning First Nation.  The AOK Treatment Home now known as Kinoondidaa’gamig (A place of talking) provides Anishnaabe children, 12 -18 years of age the opportunity to live in a First Nation’s community while receiving mental health treatment, and is licensed by the Ministry of Children and Youth Services.

 

This facility was developed to provide an alternative to the practise of sending First Nation Children off Manitoulin Island for placement and was the   1st, First Nation Treatment Home in Ontario to be opened, operated and located on reserve. 

 

Kinoondidaa’gamig provides children and families the opportunity to remain connected with each other, with their communities and culture and enhances the continuum of residential services available to First Nation children across the Province. The Treatment Home is not a long term residence for the youth but is a service that is provided to address mental health needs that cannot be meant in other regular Group or Foster Home settings.
