Indigenous peoples have a right to high quality programs and services from their governments and service providers. Our goal is to assist Indigenous governments and organizations to design, implement and evaluate programs that have meaningful and lasting social impact and community value.
Castlemain provides Indigenous communities with program-focused services across a broad range of sectors including education, health and wellness, social services, lands management and communications. Working together with front line staff, management, and leadership, we help weave best practice, innovation, and culture into all aspects of a program’s life cycle.
