In honour of Canada's first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, the Foyston, Gordon & Payne Foundation is pleased to announce a donation to the Arctic Children and Youth Foundation (ACYF), which is based in Nunavut's capital, Iqaluit.
The ACYF operates two major programs:
- A children's advocacy centre which provides culturally appropriate support to victims of child abuse in Nunavut.
- A program to ensure Inuit children receive access to health, social, and educational services offered by the federal government. Many individuals who need access to these services are unable to apply because of technological or language barriers. The ACYF's staff bridge the gap.
More information on the ACYF is available on its website.
The Foyston, Gordon & Payne Foundation was established in 2015 by the employees of FGP to support charities in communities across Canada that benefit children.
