The Wabano Centre For Aboriginal Health can be found in Vanier. The organization was established in 1998, and provides medical, social, and youth services for the more than forty thousand Indigenous people in the Ottawa area. It incorporates cultures and traditions of the First Nations in its operations, and has been based since 2013 in this twenty five thousand square foot complex. The building was designed by Canadian First Nations architect Douglas Cardinal, who happens to live in the Ottawa area. The elegant, graceful curves of the glass and structure reflect his style and heritage. Mr. Cardinal's previous architectural masterpieces include the Canadian Museum Of History here and the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington.
