Frontiers Foundation is no longer operating but this website remains as a witness to all the good work by many people; to all the good memories and relationships created over the many years. All done to the honour of the Great Spirit.


In its long history Frontiers Foundation has passed a lot of milestones and changed the lives of a large number of people. Here are some of its acheivements:

  • Recognition of indigenous leadership in hundreds of Canadian and Overseas communities.
  • Provision of capital, financial, volunteer and technical assistance to a full range of development activity including housing, road construction, electrification, reforestation, agriculture, education, and immunization.
  • Participation of more than 3,200 volunteers from over 72 countries and 17 Inuit, Metis and Native Nations in over 731 projects since 1964. They have assisted in the construction and/or renovation of 1,960 homes, 30 community centers, 3 schools, 3 parks and other facilities. The recent donation of 19 portable sawmills is allowing activity to expand even more.
  • Provision of training and new skills for disadvantaged people.
  • Completion of 49 educational projects in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon.
  • Creation of cross-cultural awareness and understanding.
