• Samian becomes the sponsor for the New Pathways Foundation
Feb 23, 2015

The New Pathways Foundation, whose primary objective is to meet the challenges that First Nations children, youth and families are faced with on a daily basis, is proud to announce that Algonquin singer Samian has agreed to lend his support and become its sponsor.

Artist Samian says that the situations of the First Nations children and youth in Quebec is a cause for concern: “After having visited many communities and met with many young people, I have unfortunately seen that there are many needs, which are often urgent, among the youth in our communities. The current government programs are not meeting all of these needs. The New Pathways Foundation directly supports youth and their families by contributing in a significant manner to their well-being.”

This is not a new observation. First Nations are struggling with major social problems. At the beginning of the chain, there is poverty, food insecurity, housing problems, disease and difficulties related to accessing quality education.


The New Pathways Foundation's mission is to contribute to improving the living conditions of the First Nations by supporting initiatives that focus on the social and human development of the individuals within their communities.


Happy and grateful to be receiving Samian’s support, Mickel Robertson, President of the Foundation, said: “Samian is a positive figure for First Nations. He represents our realities well and we believe that his association with the New Pathways Foundation is a major asset to our cause.”
