The Sexual Health Centre for Cumberland County (SHCCC) champions positive sexual health throughout the lifespan through innovative programs, collaborative partnerships and individual guidance and referral.
Sexual Health Centre for Cumberland County acknowledges it is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral, unceded and unsurrendered territory of the Mi’kmaq People. We acknowledge them as the past, present, and future caretakers of this land. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship” which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) People first signed with the British Crown in 1725. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
