Starting in January 2015, Helping our Northern Neighbours – Waterloo Region Chapter was formed. A connection was made to a former Nunavut MLA who was able to assist us with providing assistance to the Arctic Bay Food Bank, in Arctic Bay, NU.
In April 2015, we joined forces with HONN – Kitchener Waterloo and we became one chapter.
In June 2015 we expanded our support to the Artic Bay Rec Centre and Community Pre/Post Natal Program.
In September 2015, we expanded once again but this time to the community of Igloolik, NU where we are establishing an emergency food voucher program.
Over the course of several months, we grew and evolved. Then in September 2015 we decided to venture out on our own and leave the Helping our Northern Neighbours movement and become Friends of the North.
