"The diocese of Toronto has given a $100,000-grant to the suicide prevention program of the Council of the North. The council administers the Anglican Church of Canada's mission and ministry in the North, where suicide rates are four to five times higher than the national average. 'The issue of suicide is pandemic in aboriginal communities, [especially] among youth', said Archbishop Johnson, bishop of the diocese of Toronto and metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario. 'Money won't cure it', but programs 'that have some history of making a difference are worth supporting', he told the 'Anglican Journal'." "The unrestricted grant is a tithe from the diocese's Ministry Allocation Fund (MAF). Proceeds from the sale of the diocese's properties go to the MAF which allocated 10 per cent of the proceeds to support innovative ministry 'beyond the diocese', said Archbishop Johnson".

"How does one rebuild a nation that is struggling from loss of culture and stresses caused by rapid social change ? The youth from Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) have made it clear to their Chiefs that the key is to invest in the youth -- in education, economic development, life skills, cultural programming, language retention and recreation. From 2000 to 20002, PWRDF led the way in supporting the NAN Decade for Youth and Development by contributing to the development of youth councils in three First Nation communities and by funding a number of youth to attend the Youth Elder Gathering. Nishnawbe Aski Nation is the Native political organization supporting 49 Cree and Ojibway First Nations in remote northern Ontario. The population is approximately 30,000 on reserve, with 65% under the age of 26. The communities are struggling with cultural fragmentation, unemployment, poverty and poor health status as they try to move from a collective hunting/gathering society to the individualistic computer and technological age. This social stress is evidenced most graphically by the youth suicide epidemic, which has been devastating the region since 1990, with over 250 completed suicides and untold attempts". Article mentions three specific communities/nations: Wapekeka First Nation, Neskantaga First Nation and Pikangikum.

Notes
The Rev. Canon Martin Brokenleg, a psychologist and Anglican priest, addressed a suicide prevention workshop which took place 27 March 2017 in Toronto. The workshop was hosted by the office of National Indigenous Anglican Bishop Mark MacDonald. Brokenleg said "the more you tell someone not to do something, the more you embed the idea in them". "The truth is, 'Thou shalts not' has never worked. Only 'Thou shalts' work". "What this means, Brokenleg said, is that the church should be targeting the suicide crisis afflicting Indigenous communities by a 'fixation on wellness', an intense focus on helping people -- especially the young -- grow to be all they were meant to be, and convince them, by words and deeds -- of their infinite worth". The Rev. Nancy Bruyere, the church's suicide prevention co-ordinator for western Canada and the Arctic , who attended the workshop "said she was greatly encouraged by Brokenleg's talk, because it seemed to confirm what her community has already been doing".

"There were many lonely moments for Patrick Etherington Jr., 28, as he walked the 2,200 kilometres from Cochrane, Ont., to Halifax. Etherington, a member of the Moose Cree First Nation, made the trip with his father Patrick, Sr., and a group of five companions made up of residential school survivors and their children". "'There is a big problem of suicide in my community', Etherington said. 'I walked for my buddies [who committed suicide] and for those who have attempted it'." "Etherington's father, Patrick Etherington Sr., organized this walk. He said it was important to have the youth participate to raise awareness about the 'survivors of survivors' -- the children and grandchildren of survivors who were raised by traumatized parents. 'This can't go any further', he said. 'The cycle has to end now'. Last summer, the Etheringtons walked from Cochrane, Ont. to Winnipeg for the first TRC National Event, held Jun. 16-19, 2010. The trip took 31 days and covered 1,600 kilometres".
