This is a valuable test to help us detect cervical cancer early. The best time to have this done is between days 10-14 of your cycle (this is counting the first day of  menstruation as day 1). 

If by chance you no longer have a menstrual cycle, you can come in at anytime  during the month. Please contact our clinic at 250-633-5000 to book an appointment with Connie or Barb.

Thank you so much and we look forward to keeping you healthy and happy!



Starting on May 29, the Nisga’a Women’s Footprints to Wellness Workshop was held at the Laxgalts’ap Community Centre.  It was a two-day healing workshop facilitated by Melissa Myer 2 day Workshop which began at 8:30am and went to 4:30pm each day.  According to the conference materials, Ms. Meyer’s uses an approach called the Psychology of Vision – a path of the heart that has helped tens of thousands of people around the world through seminars, one-to-one coaching to improve their lives, relationships, and health by giving them an understanding of themselves and others. A total of 84 Women of all ages, from grade 11 and 12 all the way to elders, attended these sessions.


Guided by the conference theme ‘if we heal our women, we can begin to heal our Nation”, the workshop promoted and encouraged:

  • Group healing
  • Individual Healing
  • Confidence Building
  • Tools for individuals to help themselves process trauma
  • Psychology and Vision
  • Emotional Healing


One of the intentions of this event is to explore fundraising to hold a similar future workshop to be hosted in Gitlaxt’aamiks.
