"It is a very fitting and exciting way to mark the celebration of the ANFCA's 40th anniversary," said Judith Down, executive director of the Canadian Native Friendship Centre in Edmonton.
Mayer said the ANFCA is continuing with New Dawn Rising, a research project for the development of addictions prevention culturally-relevant programming.
ANFCA will be seeking funding to continue its diabetes initiative.
ANFCA is planning to increase the promotion and awareness of its organization and member centres in Alberta.
The ANFCA has developed a strategy by which it hopes that the level of funding to centres may be increased, said Mayer.
