The Toronto Urban Native Ministry (TUNM) is unique in Ontario. Working out of the Council Fire Native Cultural Centre, it blends aboriginal tradition with Christian spirituality, so that they can walk together in harmony. Founded in 2003, TUNM touches more than 6,000 lives each year. It reaches out to aboriginal people on the street, in hospitals, in jails, shelters and hostels, providing counseling, spiritual care and referrals to community services. TUNM also participates in sacred gatherings of aboriginal people, performing baptisms, weddings, funerals and Sunday services to sharing circles, spirit namings and feasts. Importantly, TUNM facilitates the reconciliation process between aboriginal and non-aboriginal peoples.
