The Spirit of Giving

It's Christmas Time Again!

Holidays can bring out the best in people. Giving has always been a key part of Native culture.

Atlantic Canada's First Nation Help Desk and Industry Canada are teaming up to recognize projects that give back to First Nation communities.

Let's give our young people recognition for their spirit of giving!
