There is a wonderful opportunity for Indigenous youth ages 16-18 to participate in a leadership and educational exchange. ‘Gibimishkaadimin’, an Indigenous word representing “paddling together by boat”, will bring Indigenous youth from across the country together with non-Indigenous youth from the Shining Waters region for a summer canoe trip in Lake Temagami, followed by reconciliation projects in their communities, and a winter reunion of the group. Any costs for the Indigenous youth will be paid for by the Gibimishkaadimin Project.
The trip will take place from August 22nd to 30th, and there are 12 spots for Indigenous youth. The deadline for applications is March 31st, 2022.
