The Aboriginal Neighbours program works at connecting Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people, groups and congregations to renew relationships between the two cultures and address issues of social and economic justice.

Richard Wagamese, Canadian Aboriginal author, spoke at the 2013 Planting Peace event on the power of storytelling as a mechanism of peace-making. MCCA’s Community Awareness through Service and Action (CASA) program has brought youth groups to Blackfoot Crossing, an Aboriginal interpretive centre in the Siksika community east of Calgary.

MCC BC's Aboriginal Neighbours program strives to foster respectful relations and understanding with Aboriginal people by creating opportunities for dialogue, service and learning for our churches and placing MCC workers in aboriginal communities. Our activities include an annual camping trip to Aboriginal communities in the province, events and workshops that bring us together with Aboriginal people to explore issues and topics that are important to them and more.
