Our foundation

The situation

The situation is not a new one. The First Nations are faced with unbearable social problems. At the beginning of the chain, there is poverty, food shortage, disease as well as issues in terms of access to quality education. At the end of this chain, there are the dramatic realities such as violence, alcoholism and gambling. The New Pathways Foundation was set up in order to address the root of the problem.

Our mission

A clear mission: to engage and support First Nations youth in Quebec in their wellness, their individual and collective development and their fulfillment.

Our way

The Foundation is collecting funds to create initiatives that will allow First Nations youth to have positive experiences.

The New Pathways Foundation is recruiting on its Board of Directors!
