Aboriginal Initiative

We acknowledge that Trinity Aurora is built on land cared for by the people of the William Treaty First Nations

(Chippewas of Beausoleil First Nation, Georgina Island First Nation, Rama First Nation, Mississaugas of Alderville First Nation, Curve Lake First Nation, Hiawatha First Nation, and the Scugog First Nation), and we respect the rich spiritual heritage that has been a part of this place for centuries. We honour their ancestors and people by acknowledging that we are their guests here on this land, and we strive to walk in a good way and care for the land while we are here.

Education

We offer Lunch & Learns, Movie Nights & Coffee Hours focusing on the impact of poverty, Residential Schools and current events (Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Idle No More)

Advocacy

We work with the National Indigenous Bishop of Canada, Bishop Mark MacDonald, and his ‘water group’ Pimatisiwin Nipi to support clean and accessible water for all people in Canada

Spiritual walk

We support the integration of thoughtful prayers and Indigenous-focused worship services

Strategic Funding

We assist the First Peoples of Canada through participation in the Advent Conspiracy program each December. Our strategic funding has been focused on the Pikangikum Water Project through PWRDF.

FIRST NATIONS, MÉTIS, AND INUIT INITIATIVES

Trinity Aurora works closely together with Bishop Mark MacDonald’s Pimatisiwin Nipi Group, and our indigenous friends, on four pillars of awareness: education advocacy, spiritual partnership with our First Nations, Métis, and Innuit (FNMI) neighbours, and strategic funding to support various FNMI projects.

WATER FIRST has already completed an internship program with youth on Manitoulin Island and is currently training more youth from the Matawa Tribal Council in northwestern Ontario.

 

Faith Communities across Canada have, since 2013, oriented our Christmas Gift Giving to respond to the URGENT need for water in Indigenous communities – a basic human right. 

 

Please help us support this vital ministry!
