In 2000, the Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHF) was created as the national charitable arm of the Aboriginal Healing Foundation (AHF) with a mission to continue to educate and create awareness and understanding about the impacts of Residential Schools on First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Survivors and their descendants. Successor to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation now administers money from all four churches to fund healing and reconciliation programs. The LoH Participates at the annual Covenant Chain, Building Our Bridges Partnership event (organized by Kairos Canada) to connect with members of Ottawa’s social justice and ecumenical communities and to build positive relationships.
