The Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC) is a provincial Indigenous organization representing the collective interests of member Friendship Centres located in towns and cities across the province.

Friendship Centres are not-for-profit corporations which are mandated to serve the needs of all Indigenous people regardless of legal definition, and are the primary service delivery agents for Indigenous people requiring culturally-sensitive and culturally-appropriate services in urban communities.

The vision of the Friendship Centre movement is to “improve the quality of life for Indigenous people living in an urban environment by supporting self-determined activities which encourage equal access to and participation in Canadian society and which respect Indigenous cultural distinctiveness”.
