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.

Lawrence Gladue, C.M. President
Marco A. Guzman, LLD, Executive Director

On Thursday June 29, our Annual Breakfast was a huge success with 120 attendees in the Flora McCrea Hall at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. As usual our faithful Batchawana Bay friends Iolene and Olaf Bjornaa donated and cooked fresh pickerel and trout for everyone.

Tribal Vision Mohawk grass and shawl dancers Derek and Naomi Martin entertained us. Longtime Ojibwa elder and Frontiers Board member Shelley Charles led us in both Ojibwa and English prayer with song. Rev. Dr.Andrew Sterling delivered Grace, and Rev. Charles Catto introduced Guest of Honour and Speaker Frontiers President Lawrence Gladue, C.M.

Lawrence reminded the audience of the great start made in 1974 by Liberal Housing Minster Hon. Ron Basford in addressing the Aboriginal housing crisis.
