Metis Reunification Centre

The Metis Family Reunification Centre provided McKinley Burkart with the opportunity to engage in a project that would become a vital and positive building in the community.  This unique centre is designed for families who are in the final stages of reunification after having gone through treatment or therapies.  This program required a mix of spaces including private living quarters as well as community spaces, paying respect to the traditions and culture of the Metis people and creating spaces that work for their way of life.  Safety and well-being of the occupants and the community were key considerations in this project, and at McKinley Burkart we believe that the right built environment can lead to positive change in peoples’ lives.
