Sep 04, 2013

Wendake, September 4, 2013 – The New Pathways: Foundation for the future of the First Nations received a ten thousand dollar ($10 000) donation during the 21st Golf Tournament of the Native Benefits Plan (NBP) Financial Group that was held last August 22nd at the Club de Golf de la Faune in Quebec.

Ms. Marjolaine Sioui, Executive Director of the FNQLHSSC, on behalf of the Board of Directors of the New Pathways Foundation, accepted the check presented by Mr. Sylvain Picard, NBP General Manager, and Mr. Norm Odjick, President of the NBP.

The RBA Foundation gave $30 000, including proceeds raised during the 21st Golf Tournament of the Native Benefits (NBP) Financial Group, to three charitable organisations: Innu Meshkenu, represented by Dr. Stanley Vollant, the First Nations and Inuit Suicide Prevention Association of Quebec and Labrador, represented by Melanie Petiquay, and the New Pathways: Foundation for the future of the First Nations.

The FNQLHSSC joins the New Pathways Foundation in order to thank the NBP Financial Group for this gesture. This collaboration will allow the Foundation to shine more and will certainly contribute to the development of the youth in the First Nations communities. Thank you for helping us to fulfill their dreams!

Established by the FNQLHSSC, the New Pathways Foundation was officially launched in April 2012. Its mission is to contribute to improving the living conditions of the First Nations by funding projects that focus on the social and human development of the individuals within their communities.

The FNQLHSSC would also like to take this opportunity to thank the founding members of the New Pathways Foundation: Mr. Aurélien Gill, Mr. John Martin and Mr. Andrew Delisle, Sr.
