Tree of Creation
The "Tree Of Creation" logo brings together a number of images, which symbolizes and guides the work we do.
Where we come from - the past.
Where we are now – the present.
Where we want to be – the future.
Life & Family,
is our communities, defining needs and acting to meet those needs. It is our grassroots movement which nurtures our values.
The Growing Trunk
helps us to measure our progress and development as HIV/AIDS issues in the community are addressed.
symbolize our areas of focus – prevention, care and support, treatment, research, and surveillance.
personify our individual and professional roles and responsibilities.
The Tipi Poles
in the distance guide us towards our future ideal and our goal of a healthy response to HIV/AIDS.
The Red Ribbon
incorporates the universal symbol of HIV/AIDS with the red heart of love.
recognizes our place of beginning, and the creative forces that work through us, continuing without end. It's also significant to the Métis community.
