Background of Circle of Eagles Lodge (COELS)

Circle of Eagles Lodge Society was incorporated as the Allied Indian and Metis Society on May 29, 1970.  The Society formally changed its name to the Circle of Eagles Lodge Society at its 25th anniversary, 1995.


Circle of Eagles Lodge Society (COELS) envisions Indigenous Brothers and Sisters leading healthy, balanced lives as empowered individuals, within their families, communities, cultures and traditions.


COELS supports Indigenous Brothers and Sisters leaving federal institutions and those dislocated from society, to reintegrate into Community by providing respectful wholistic services and culturally safe spaces.
