LOVE FOR THE NORTH

The education system in northern Canada is struggling in many ways. First Nations schools receive less funding compared to public schools, and they also face greater challenges due to their remoteness, the extreme weather, and the special needs of their individual communities.

The goal of our Love for the North campaign is to send 100 gift boxes of resource books to northern schools to support literacy, numeracy, and other fundamental thinking skills that are highly valued by educators and employers alike.

DC Canada Education will partner with local business and individuals to share the cost of sending each of the selected schools a gift box full of new books to inspire and empower young students in important subjects like social studies, financial literacy, mathematics, critical thinking, and language arts.

By joining us in this campaign, you will not only be supporting education in remote communities, you will be supporting the work of Canadian authors. In return, we will be happy to promote your business on our website and share the news of your generosity with the chosen schools and local media.

Let’s show our warm love for the north and a demonstration of our solidarity. Every $100 you donate provides a school with a box of books containing $200 dollars worth of new educational resources.
