Celebrating National Indigenous History Month

June is National Indigenous History Month in Canada! It’s a time to celebrate the rich, diverse culture of First Nations, Metis and Inuit Peoples. True North Aid is proud to support Indigenous-led Initiatives and Initiatives that support Indigenous peoples across northern and remote regions of Canada. We hope you will participate in events being held across the country to celebrate this month.

Our Mission

To provide practical humanitarian support to northern and remote Indigenous communities in Canada.

Many Indigenous peoples who live in the most remote regions of the country experience an extreme lack of access to essential and affordable resources. In addition, Indigenous peoples experience ongoing negative impacts of forced assimilation, restrictive policies, and displacement. Examples include residential schools, intergenerational trauma and many other policies under the Indian Act 1876.  Therefore, Indigenous peoples in Canada face striking inequities in health and wellness outcomes, education, food, economic sovereignty and housing security, particularly those living in northern and remote communities. 

True North Aid believes that Indigenous self-governance and self-determination are key to addressing these inequities and empowering Indigenous peoples to build a brighter future.
