Hope for Wellness

Telephone and online ‘chat’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


The Hope for Wellness Helpline is available to all Indigenous people across Canada. Experienced and culturally competent counsellors are reachable by telephone and online ‘chat’ 24 hours a day, 7 days a week

Both telephone and online chat services are available in English and French. Telephone support is also available upon request in:

  • Cree;
  • Ojibway (Anishinaabemowin);
  • Inuktitut.

(Note: Supports in Cree, Ojibway, and Inuktitut are not available 24/7, so you may need to call in to find out the next time that a language-speaker will be available.)
