Please join me in congratulating Lylas Polson, Frontiers Foundation’s Quebec Regional Coordinator, the Chief and three men from Kitcisakik, Que. as well as architect Guillaume Levesque of Architectes de l'urgence et de la Coopération of Quebec, who were recognized by the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada and received medals from the Governor General David Johnston. Lylas was sick on that day and could not attend. Charles Catto, Founding Director of Frontiers Foundation, accepted the medal on his behalf.
It is with profoundest regret that we acknowledge the sudden passing of our esteemed and beloved patron of three decades, Honourable Lincoln Alexander.
Linc was far more than a great name for Frontiers Foundation. Even while he was Lieutenant Governor of Ontario he went courageously past his guidelines to advocate effectively for us with government. “Guidelines?” he laughed: “Sometimes we have to straddle them!”. On behalf of forever grateful Frontiers Foundation, we express sincerest condolences to Marni and the family for the towering life and dedication of one of Canada’s alltime foremost citizens, Lincoln M. Alexander.
Charles Catto, honourary chief of the Wasauksing Ojibwa First Nation, talks about home building projects across the country that the Frontiers Foundation is doing.
Watch the interview here:
The architects responsible for helping rebuild a Quebec First Nation have won the Governor General’s Medal for architecture.
Emergency Architects Canada is rebuilding the Anishinabe community of Kitcisakik located about 350 kilometres north of Montreal.
APTN National News visited the community last November and reporter Danielle Rochette offers a look back.

This splendid award represents well deserved recognition not only for Charles’ near-fifty years of service with Frontiers Foundation / Operation Beaver but for all the partnering thousands who have dug, hammered, sweated, prayed, advocated and fundraised to make so much good news in housing, health, road construction, education, agriculture, reforestation and electrification happen.
On behalf of Frontiers Foundation, we congratulate Rev. Charles R. Catto, honorary Chief Wasauksing Ojibwa First Nation.

Warm greetings to you. I just came back from my country of origin where I have witnessed the lack of school furniture in several rural schools on the Bolivian high plateau.
Frontiers Foundation is now seeking donations to allow the villagers on Bolivia’s high plateau (Altiplano) to purchase lumber and manufacture hexagonal tables and smaller chairs (as shown above) for children attending the rural schools.
The cost of one hexagonal table and 6 chairs is US$100 and will greatly enhance the education of these children.
Please also forward this appeal to your friends who might be inclined to give their helping hand to Bolivia. There is a strong potential that monies raised through this campaign will be matched 3 to 1 by the Canadian International Development Agency.Submitted by tupac on September 13, 2012 - 9:53pm.
On Thursday June 29, our Annual Breakfast was a huge success with 120 attendees in the Flora McCrea Hall at Timothy Eaton Memorial Church. As usual our faithful Batchawana Bay friends Iolene and Olaf Bjornaa donated and cooked fresh pickerel and trout for everyone.Submitted by tupac on July 7, 2012 - 6:36am.
