A letter from the founders...

NAYOP was founded in 2019 with the objective to make a difference in the lives of First Nations people and youth of Northern Ontario. We are excited for the journey ahead and are ready to collaborate with the public, reserves, medical schools, government and philanthropy to solve the most difficult health challenges faced in our own backyard.

COVID-19: We are suspending operations until 2021 in light of recent developments and travel restrictions. We encourage you to stay safe at home and practice social distancing. Updates can be found at the WHO website.

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work, and pay respects to Elders, past and present.
