The Fitzpatrick Award is named for our founder and is the highest recognition that we bestow to an organization.

Cree School Board

Frontier College formed a partnership with The Cree School Board in 2013 to bring the Indigenous Summer Literacy Camps program to children in Quebec. This partnership has grown stronger every year since and now serves nine communities. In addition to funding, the School Board also provides free use of its school facilities, facilitates relationships between Frontier College and the principals and leadership in each community, and helps to promote Frontier College and the camps among parents and community members. We value The Cree School Board’s steadfast support in serving thousands of Cree children in Quebec.

Arden H. King

The Companion Award is the highest recognition that we bestow to an individual.

Arden first heard about Frontier College from the late CBC Radio journalist Peter Gzowski. For several years in various capacities, she volunteered her time at our national office and demonstrated a deep passion and commitment to our mission and vision. For over 25 years, Arden has personally supported Frontier College, generously donating and inspiring others to give through her annual holiday matching gift challenge. Arden is always there to lend her encouragement at our events, celebrating our learners and volunteers. We gratefully recognize Arden’s remarkable support and friendship.
