Cultural & Community Supports
The C5 Hub is all about building community and celebrating the diversity of cultures in Edmonton.
We offer a variety of services that support cultural and community involvement including smudging and smudge kits, access to Elders and knowledge keepers, English language classes, free tax help, and a number of community events that bring people together.
We invite you to smudge with us on site. Smudge kits are also available to take home.
Smudging is a traditional way of prayer, common to many Indigenous peoples globally. Smudging often involves burning one or more medicines from Mother Earth, including tobacco, sage, sweetgrass and cedar. Once the medicines are lit, the rising smoke is considered a purifying agent for the mind, body and spirit, as well as a connection to the spirit world.
Our English conversation classes provide learners with an opportunity to improve their confidence in speaking English and meet other adults who are learning English.
