In Partnership with Honouring Indigenous Peoples, Indigenous Services Canada, ISWO, Trucks for Change, Kriska Transport and other organizations, True North Aid is collecting new and/or slightly used Hockey Equipment to send to Montreal Lake First Nation Community to support Youth in that community who struggle with many issues.

Project Overview

TrueNorth Aid is helping to collect and purchase hockey equipment and supplies for youth living on the Montreal Lake First Nation.
Sports and Cultural activities improve self-esteem and social skills while providing motivation for education and other areas of life.
