Actua is committed to engaging youth from coast to coast to coast specifically reaching the hardest to reach communities in Canada. For the past fifteen years Actua has been a trusted and valued STEM outreach partner for dozens of communities across the Northwest Territories, Yukon Territory, Nunavut, Northern Quebec, and Labrador.
Through Actua’s Outreach Team, network members, and over 40 partnering northern communities, Actua engages approximately 5,000 northern youth a year. This includes hundreds of school workshops throughout the year and more than 30 weeks of summer camp. The programming includes customized content that showcases Northern science, traditional knowledge and Northern economic development opportunities.
Our commitment is to provide sustained programming in these and other locations, returning each year to strengthen the impact of the programming on the youth we reach.
We have developed excellent community relations and work closely with many organizations such as Hamlet offices, Friendship Centres, Inuit Associations and/or Aboriginal organizations to host day-camps, and schools to host workshops.
