Project North is a not-for-profit organization committed to enhancing and improving the lives of children in Canada's North.
Project North's community-based and national funding initiatives will generate opportunities to provide education and fitness programs that benefit the Inuit youth of today and of the future.
Project North's goal is to galvanize Canadians from coast to coast to coast to look North, become more aware, and lend a hand to support children - one of our country's greatest resources.
First Air shipped up 16 hockey bags donated by the NHLPA Goals & Dreams Fund to the community of Cape Dorset, Nunavut.
Here is a quote from Rodney MacIntyre from the RCMP:
"The kids and the community of Cape Dorset are extremely grateful for all of the support and help from everyone involved in Project North. Thanks to the hard work and generosity of so many, for the first time ever any youth in Cape Dorset who wants to play hockey will be able to be given this opportunity. The kids, the community, and I, couldn't be more excited".
