True North Aid

True North Aid is dedicated to serving and supporting northern Indigenous communities in Canada through practical humanitarian support.  With more than 60 per cent of Indigenous children living below the poverty line, there is much work to be done. The issues facing Indigenous communities in Canada are complex and are the result of many things that have transpired over the past 150 years. True North Aid believes that self-governance and self-determination is key to closing the poverty gap. 
 
As a Canadian charity, our mandate is to provide practical humanitarian assistance through initiatives established on eight foundational stones of support. These include self-determination, reconciliation, water, food, health, housing, hope and education. Our priority is to help ensure the dignity and health of Indigenous people through our actions. Our self-determination activities are designed to help inspire and empower Indigenous youth to pursue their dreams and, in turn, empower their people and community.  

​Through reconciliation and education we raise awareness and promote an understanding of the tragic history of non-Indigenous/Indigenous relations in Canada, helping us to understand why we find ourselves in this present situation. As we do, attitudes and prejudices change and we open doors to a broader discussion and understanding of the options that are available. We believe that mutual cooperation and respect will make the difference.

As a charity we choose to stay away from issues that divide us and embrace activities that unite us and fall within our mandate to serve our First Peoples in Canada with practical humanitarian assistance. 

True North Aid is supported by a Board of Directors who come from respected charity organizations, public service and industry, as well as partners with over 35 years of experience providing aid to isolated communities. We have 4 Indigenous Elders who serve us as advisors. We consult with Indigenous representatives in every community we work with and they provide us with direction and leadership in how we engage with their people, understanding every community is different. 

With your help and support, we are seeing lives changed and our True North once again becoming strong and free…
