Wequedong Lodge of Thunder Bay received its charitable, non-profit corporate status in 1984, operations commenced the following year. The mandate of Wequedong Lodge is to provide accommodations, including meals, translation, transportation and referral services to First Nations (on and off reserve), Metis and Inuit accessing medical care in Thunder Bay. Wequedong Lodge has qualified and experienced staff to deliver services on a twenty-four hour basis.
Wequedong Lodge is centrally located and is easily accessible to hospital, clinics and transportation depots. Wequedong Lodge is governed by a voluntary Board of Directors. Financial and program accountability is provided by staff hired by the Board. Communication and working relationships have been developed between the Lodge and Northwestern Ontario communities, nursing stations, physicians, health authorities and hospitals. Wequedong Lodge has developed a dependable reputation in providing a safe and secure environment for clients. Wequedong Lodge provides a drug and alcohol free environment. We have also gained an adequate understanding of health care needs of First Nations (on and off reserve), Metis and Inuit. (Metis will be afforded a preferred client rate equal to one half of the current overnight charge per client). Wequedong Lodge's main goal is to continue to meet the needs of Aboriginal people.
