Bridging the Gap - Aboriginal Summer Literacy Camps

For the past decade, TD has worked with Frontier College to create early literacy opportunities in Aboriginal communities.  In 2015, TD made a further $2.5 million donation to Frontier College to expand the program to reach more Indigenous children. This is the largest donation made to a single organization in TD’s history.
This is a story of collaboration, one that is better positioning Aboriginal youth for success.

To help foster this beneficial program, TD is a national sponsor reflecting  their longtime commitment to Aboriginal communities and creating opportunities for young people. Their support has helped to support and grow the program nationwide – from an original five camps in Northern Ontario to over 120 camps across Canada last year.

See the positive impact the literacy camps are making in Elsipogtog First Nation, New Brunswick and other communities across Canada.
