ABOUT US

The Helping House provides wholistic, culturally-integrated primary care for Indigenous clients and families. We are a team of interdisciplinary clinicians, including family physicians, a naturopath, nurse practitioners, a traditional Elder, and others, and strive to serve the Tsleil-Waututh Nation peoples by way of medical oversight, health and wellness services, and cultural healing.

Known as the People of the Inlet, the Tsleil-Waututh have lived on the unceded lands of the Burrard Inlet since time immemorial. Entrusted by their ancestors as stewards of the land, water, and air, the Tsleil-Waututh draw on the spirituality and wisdom of their traditional healers and knowledge keepers to fulfill this trust and thereby support the health of their families and communities at large.

By joining our team, you will come to enjoy not only fulfilling working relations with fellow colleagues, but also a meaningful connection with the people we serve, and from whom we continue to have much to learn.
