Who We Are

As a young population that is a majority, education is definitely a priority…  And also ensuring culture and language education is included in that theme.

The Arctic Rose Foundation (ARF) is a registered Canadian charity (CRA# 800801879RR0001). Founded by Inuk singer/songwriter Susan Aglukark, the purpose of the ARF is to nurture Northern Indigenous Children and Youth in their efforts to engage all aspects of their lives.

Through program development and partnerships, the Foundation creates culturally, emotionally, spiritually and physically safe spaces and programs to engage Northern children and youth in healthy and meaningful ways. When a need is identified, and a program does not exist, the ARF will develop one with the assistance and participation of respective communities and local northern children and youth.
