“Building it Right” Conference held in Winnipeg, Manitoba was a tremendously successful reunion.

The Manitoba Northern and Aboriginal Housing Conference held at Marlborough Hotel, Winnipeg on February 8, 9 and 10, 2011 was hosted by Frontiers Foundation Manitoba Division in association with Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs and Northern Association of Community Councils. It was attended by 300 enthusiastic Cree, Ojibwa and Metis delegates plus guests and speakers from Quebec, Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia, Yukon, and even Alaska.

Some more photos of Laura & Pat Kemp’s house in Lanark Highlands Township, Ontario. These pictures show how quickly the financial support of The Advocates' Society has been transformed into a new, safe, warm home.

Under the leadership of house builder Steve Bulloch, many local friends and a couple of Operation Beaver volunteers have pitched in, and all the suppliers have donated or discounted significantly.

Lanark house - before

On Sunday November 14, Charles Catto Frontiers Foundation Founding Director visited 731 Bow Lake Road in Lanark Highlands, a good hour drive east of Ottawa.

This is the site of Pat and Laura Kemp’s new four bedroom home, replacing their old ramshackle dwelling now pulled down and removed. The new basement and septic system are now in place, with much of the building materials including roof trusses now on site. Construction Supervisor is Journeyman Carpenter Steve Bullock who has built fifty frame houses and is a longtime neighbour and friend of Pat’s. Fourteen local family and friends have already signed up to help as volunteers, and more are expected from The Advocates' Society, which has already contributed very generously with cash support. Rev.
