THE GORD DOWNIE & CHANIE WENJACK FUND

Inspired by Chanie’s story and Gord’s call to build a better Canada, the Gord Downie & Chanie Wenjack Fund aims to build cultural understanding and create a path toward reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

Our goal is to improve the lives of Indigenous people by building awareness, education, and connections between all Canadians.
