Diamond Jubilee Medal

“For his work to engage Canadian and international youth in building and reclamation projects”.

This splendid award represents well deserved recognition not only for Charles’ near-fifty years of service with Frontiers Foundation / Operation Beaver but for all the partnering thousands who have dug, hammered, sweated, prayed, advocated and fundraised to make so much good news in housing, health, road construction, education, agriculture, reforestation and electrification happen.

On behalf of Frontiers Foundation, we congratulate Rev. Charles R. Catto, honorary Chief Wasauksing Ojibwa First Nation.
