Actua is pleased to announce that Actua in the North, our outreach program for youth across the Arctic, is the recipient of an RBC Award for the Far North in Ashoka Canada’s Changemaker Initiative: Inspiring Approaches to First Nations, Métis and Inuit Learning. The competition, which welcomed submissions from across Canada and around the world, recognizes innovation in educating Aboriginal people in and beyond the classroom.
Since Actua's first northern camp took place in Iqaluit over 10 years ago, we have engaged ten of thousands of Northern youth in dynamic, culturally relevant programming. We would like to thank the Suncor Energy Foundation, GE Canada and the Canadian Northern Economic Development Agency for their continued support of this program.
