INTERNATIONAL YEAR OF VOLUNTEERS IN OTTAWA

A United Nations report released on December 5th indicates that volunteerism contributes to the well-being of individuals, communities and society. The first State of the World’s Voluntarism was released in New York on the 10th Anniversary of the International Year of Volunteers.

On November 7, 2011 1:30 p.m. our Quebec Regional Coordinator Lylas Polson delivered the following note to Ougé-Bougoumou Cree Nation and Grand Council of the Crees on behalf of Frontiers Foundation/Operation Beaver.

Congratulations on successful negotiation of the Complementary Agreement to the James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement together with the governments of Quebec and Canada.

Our mutually productive partnership with Oujé-Bougoumou goes way back to 1966 when Chief Jimmy Mianscum asked us to help build a Community Centre in the old Lac Doré settlement with a meeting hall, a library, a laundromat and overnight rooms for trappers – called “The Beaverhouse”. And everybody pitched in to make it happen, including youngsters like Abel Bosum, Sydney Coonashish and Wally Wapachee.
