Supporting youth & families in health, wellness and opportunity!


The North Island Youth and Family Foundation is proud to partner with North Island Crisis and Counselling Centre Society and our MANY community partners are thrilled to be bringing Foundry to Port Hardy.

Our goal is to build a permanent centre for Youth on Market Street in downtown Port Hardy/Gwa'dzi!


Foundry offers free and confidential support for young people ages 12 to 24 – this includes mental health care, substance use services, physical & sexual healthcare, youth and family peer supports, and social services – both online and in-person in communities across BC.
