Aboriginal Healing Foundation
Thematically by item type.
The Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF), an Aboriginal managed organization, was established in 1998. The AHF was established as a not-for-profit organization with a one time grant of $350 million dollars from the Canadian government.
The AHF has encouraged and and supported Aboriginal directed healing initiatives relating to the legacy of Canada's Indian Residential School System. The AHF has worked as facilitators in the healing process by helping Aboriginal people and their communities help themselves, by providing resources, promoting awareness, and taking a holistic approach to healing.
The AHF's mandate runs to September 2012, at which point the Foundation will disband as no additional funds have been committed to AHF.
Fonds comprises publications and project documentation created by or related to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation. Fonds includes resource manuals, guides, research publications, and other material.
