True North Aid

(Unverified non-profit organisation)

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. ​
