About the Community of Practice (CoP)

The Thunderbird Partnership Foundation is a non-profit organization that is committed to working with First Nations to further the capacity of communities to address substance use and addiction. We promote a holistic approach to healing and wellness that values culture, respect, community, and compassion. Our top priority is developing a continuum of care that would be available to all Indigenous people in Canada.

Thunderbird Partnership Foundation’s Community of Practice (CoP) is a virtual community designed to connect people, enable dialogue, stimulate learning, capture, and share existing knowledge, introduce collaborative process and generate new knowledge. The Train-the-Trainer (TTT) Journeys and CoP Hubs (including the Community Wellness Hub) are housed within the CoP.

Share Knowledge

The Community of Practice (CoP) provides a national network through which the knowledge, experience and skills of its members can be shared. We encourage you to share your knowledge, ask questions, participate in discussion, and become an integral part of the community.


The Community of Practice (CoP) is a great place to connect with Thunderbird staff, NNADAP Workers (and In-Patient Treatment Addiction Workers), and persons who work with an Indigenous specific treatment and wellness program.
