Frontiers Foundation is seeking volunteers to work in the north of Canada either in the schools or with the youth of the communities. These projects are scheduled to begin in early September and continue for the school year, through to the end of June. We will be looking for volunteers to work as tutors and teaching assistants in schools throughout the Northwest Territories and we expect to have education projects in the communities of Inuvik, Wrigely, Hay River, Fort Simpson, Nahanni Butte, Trout Lake, and Fort Smith.
Frontiers Foundation is looking for people willing to help build / renovate, safe, warm homes in partnership with northern Ontario and Manitoba mainly aboriginal families. If you have construction experience, share it with those who want to train on site. All travel, accommodation and food expenses plus volunteer allowances are provided.
Meaningful volunteer work producing enduring good news for and with our fellow Canadians. Three month commitment preferable, but negotiable.
Robbert HartogOn January 29th a supergreat friend and strong supporter of our Aboriginal voluntary service organization passed away. Robbert Hartogâ€™s commitment to affordable housing prompted him and his friend to donate $100,000 towards Project AMIK housing complex in East Toronto. For this facility now occupied by 50% Canadian first citizens and 50% by others, Frontiers Foundation was awarded the â€œBest Affordable Housing Practicesâ€ trophy.
Monday October 15 was a very special day at Project Amik in east Toronto; a sorely needed Crosswalk was officially opened!
Project Amik is a 75 â€“ unit affordable housing project at 419-425 Coxwell Avenue housing a French immersion daycare facility â€œLe Petit Chaperon Rougeâ€ and the combined offices of Frontiers Foundation and New Frontiers Aboriginal Residential Corporation (NFARC). Project Amik residents are 50% aboriginal and 50% non-aboriginal. Fourteen of the apartment suites are reserved for and occupied by handicapped tenants.
On the bright morning Frontiers hosted its annual breakfast that happened to coincide with the National Day of Action called by the Assembly of First Nations. Frontiers Foundations had a welcome inter-cultural event at the top of the Royal Bank tower over looking downtown Toronto streets, the islands and the waters of Lake Ontario.
