In 2016, The Harbinger Foundation Board decided to focus efforts on two challenging areas within Canadian Indigenous communities: food security & nutrition and youth & culture.

This program supports the ongoing development of healthy communities through:

  • Better access to fresh, nutritious, affordable, locally sourced food

  • Supporting the strengthening and reclaiming of culture, essential to healing.

  • Building respect between our peoples by encouraging interaction and educating about Indigenous issues.
