The North Bay Indian Friendship Centre has received grants of $360,000 from the Ontario Trillium Foundation and $100,000 from the Ontario Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs to support the Urban Aboriginal Strategy, which will implement the findings of a report entitled Walking the Red Road, Our community’s journey to help each person live a good life. The funding is the culmination of a two-year community-driven research and social action project, Urban Aboriginal Communities Thrive, designed to bring together both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal community members, organizations and other partners to lay the foundation for strengthening social and economic participation of North Bay’s Aboriginal people. The report highlights eight key learnings, including the fact that an Aboriginal worldview influences how community members experience services and that those services need to be more responsive.
