We offer medically supervised withdrawal management, mental health crisis supports and holistic live-in wellness for youth aged 12-18. As an Indigenous-led and founded organization, Orca Lelum draws from the strengths of both worlds, weaving mainstream wellness approaches with Indigenous ways of healing to create stronger outcomes. 

We are nestled within magnificent Snaw-Naw-As First Nation territory on Vancouver Island, close to the city of Nanaimo and Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
