NOTE: Due to the pandemic, Anglican churches were closed, and services were held online via Zoom; and government issued health measures were enforced. Safety became a priority for all projects, therefore the number of participants in the projects was limited. Consequently, projects became Land Based Healing Camps, and it took the projects longer time to finish their activities.

The purpose of the Healing Fund is to help facilitate the healing of former residential school students, their families, and communities. The goals of the Healing Fund are to regain and enhance one’s traditional knowledge, engage in the healing processes, and advance capacity skills development. Many projects focus on traditional knowledge, natural worlds, cultural arts, outdoor activities, and healing circles.
