Experience life in a remote Northern Ontario community

We’ll participate in Cree winter traditions such as ice fishing and hunting. By engaging with the youth and elders in the community, we’ll learn about local Indigenous issues and history.

Highlights:

  • Sightseeing and fishing on the French River
  • Learning how to prepare a traditional meal (goose, moose stew, bannock)
  • Snowmobiling and snowshoeing at the tip of James Bay
An amazing experience and a way to connect with the land and the First Nations communities.

The biggest lesson for me came in the form of getting a sense of what it is to live in Moose Factory…. I learned about their difficulties in getting clean water, getting access to healthcare, and other things that we at Crescent consider to be daily ‘givens’. Now that I am back, I know that we should pay much more attention and provide much more support to the people in our nation, in our own province.
