SOCIAL CONDITIONS OF ABORIGINAL & INUIT PEOPLES
Historical 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 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 are in abusive situations – with well-documented, everlasting, inter-generational effects that many are still dealing with to this day.
The First Nation Growers Inc. organization is committed to improving the overall social development and well-being of indigenous and Inuit peoples. Through strengthening daily, year-round, healthy diets and providing continual access to affordable, fresh foods in every indigenous community where possible, we will help unlock First Nation and Inuit people’s true potential toward positive social development through better health.
