Congratulations to The Nanilavut Initiative on being a proud recipient of a financial gift of $11,000 from the Jays Care Foundation to support IRC’s efforts towards Truth and Reconciliation and helping survivors of residential schools and their families.

The generous financial gift from Jays Care Foundation to The Nanilavut Initiative will have a significant and positive impact on the important work that IRC does on behalf of Inuvialuit beneficiaries. It’s encouraging to see organizations like Jays Care Foundation taking meaningful steps to acknowledge and support such important initiatives related to Truth and Reconciliation and providing assistance to survivors of residential schools and their families.

This donation will help further the goals of Truth and Reconciliation and contribute to healing and understanding within our communities. It’s a meaningful step towards acknowledging the historical injustices faced by Indigenous people and working towards a more just and inclusive future.
