Chris Marchand served as editor of the Dryden Observer from August 2009 to April 2018.


Starting Monday, January 22, 2018, partners of the Dryden Urban Indigenous Homeward Bound Program will be accepting applications to this highly anticipated program. 

Dryden Urban Indigenous Homeward Bound (DUIHB) is a new program which provides wraparound services to help unemployed or underemployed Indigenous mother-led families earn college diplomas, start careers, and achieve economic self-sufficiency. This is a 4 to 5-year commitment.

Successful applicants to the program will receive: life skills and academic upgrading, h housing, income support, child care, cultural support and mentoring, post-secondary education, local internship and/or apprenticeship opportunities, employment supports and work experience. 

We would like to recognize and thank our development funder, Ontario Trillium Foundation, as well as WoodGreen based out of Toronto, Ontario which our program concept parallels.

If you are a single urban Indigenous mother interested in learning more about this amazing local opportunity; please contact the Program Coordinator at 807-223-4180 ex 2235.
