SOCIAL CONDITIONS OF ABORIGINAL & INUIT PEOPLES
Historic inequities have left indigenous children, youth, and families without much needed supports and services, low incomes and remote locations. Aboriginal people in Canada are our forgotten peoples, that have been deprived of their lands, their cultural traditions, and their unique way of life. Children have been removed from their families and sent away to residential schools – where many were abused – with well-documented, everlasting, inter-generational effects, that to this day, many are still dealing with.
The First Nations Growers Inc. organization is committed to improving the overall social development and well-being of indigenous and Inuit peoples through improving daily, year- round, healthy diets by providing continual access to affordable, fresh foods in every indigenous community where possible, that in turn will help unlock First Nation and Inuit peoples true potential toward positive social development through better health.
