The Gabriel Dumont Institute of Native Studies and Applied research (GDI) has partnered up with United Way of Saskatoon and Area as well as the Government of Canada to support northern Saskatchewan Indigenous students.

According to a media release, GDI has received $50,000 to support Indigenous students in La Ronge and La Loche through the COVID-19 Emergency Community Support Fund (ECSF).

“The impact of COVID-19 has been substantial to all of our students and communities, especially those in northern Saskatchewan,” Geordy McCaffery, GDI’s executive director, said. “GDI’s priority right now is the health and safety of our students as we navigate through this pandemic.
