STILL TIME TO ACT! Canada Obligated to Continue Funding the Aboriginal Healing Foundation

Email Stephen Harper and all Members of Parliament before Mon April 12

by Susan Krajnc

According to NDP Member of Parliament Niki Ashton’s office, the budget debates in the House of Commons will resume on Monday, April 12th so there is still time to make your voice heard in support of the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF). 


Email Prime Minister Stephen Harper and all Members of Parliament before Monday, April 12!  Email addresses provided below.



Dear Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Members of Parliament,

I was alarmed to learn that in the 2010 Budget, the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) will be cut-off.  I urge you to reverse this decision on Monday, April 12 at Second Reading as the budget debate continues.

The essential community-based work by the AHF in the last 12 years across Canada with survivors of the residential schools system cannot be forfeited now.  No Aboriginal-based healing program should be cut-off at this time and, indeed, services should be expanded   -- to help heal the inter-generational legacy of abuse.

Yours sincerely,



Aboriginal Healing Foundation

Six women from Missing Justice held a sit-in recently at the Indian Affairs Minister’s office to restore funding to the AHF:
