History
The concept for the Nipawin Oasis Community Centre originated in response to a request for additional recreational and social opportunities for people with long-term mental illness in the area.  A need for more specific counseling services in the areas of nutrition, budgeting and life skills was also identified.  The idea for a “drop-in-centre” offering social and recreational opportunities, a self-help group and some counseling services for the individuals was proposed by Lyle Adderly and MaryLou Hamilton. 

The possibility of sharing with other groups in the community was raised.  An initial proposal was drafted and presented at a series of meetings with representatives of health, social and educational services, user groups, Town Council, the Chamber of Commerce, the RCMP and other citizens’ groups. 

In November 1992, the Nipawin Oasis Community Centre Co-operative came into being.
