Province: Ontario

Community: Ontario Wide 

Date: 2019

In 2019, True North Aid supported the Growing Roots Program with a $15,000 donation to help provide water science education for Indigenous youth in an effort toward long term-environmental action and stewardship. In 2020, True North Aid supported WaterFirst’s Drinking Water Internship Program with $10,000. The Internship was born from community feedback, guidance and partners coming together with a focus on training and education to create local solutions. As a community-based and evidence-based solution, the program continues to be a priority for many communities, facing critical water challenges.
