True North Foundation offers ongoing multiple programs in the
Greater Toronto area to encourage the linkage between community,
culture, and service. These programs are designed to engage the
interaction between generations in a context that is not only
positive and mind-expanding, but also in a spirit of sharing and
giving back to society at large. Based on this philosophy, our
programs are viewed as a bridge to building local culture and sense
of identity in Canada.
