We’re offering a special Lunch and Learn on June 20 from 12pm-1pm with our Associate Director, Chris Ashkewe. This virtual presentation is part of our Great Canadian Giving Challenge fundraising campaign to raise additional funds needed for support in the operational costs of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School restoration project.

The virtual tour video was created with local production company Thru the Reddoor, and it follows the guide, Lorrie Gallant, as she gives a tour of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School. During the video Lorrie provides the history of the institution over its 140 year history. Viewers will get to see the different rooms in the school, from the girls’ and boys’ dormitories, the cafeteria, laundry room, and other rooms throughout the building, as well as hear interviews from five Survivors of the Mohawk Institute.

Your donation will help support us in the Great Canadian Giving Challenge to win the grand prize of $10,000 towards our mission. The Great Canadian Giving Challenge is a month-long fundraising initiative held each June and invites donors to contribute through CanadaHelps.org or CanadaHelps fundraising tools. Every dollar donated in June serves as an entry for WCC to win one of two $10,000 prizes. WCC is aiming to secure funding support needed for the restoration project of the former Mohawk Institute Residential School. The vision is to turn the building into an Interpretive Historic Site and Educational Resource, shedding light on a significant chapter in Canadian history. The support of our giving community is vital for the future of the Cultural Centre.
