4th Annual Christmas in the North a Huge Success

In December, Athabasca Basin Development co-sponsored the fourth annual Christmas in the North Campaign together with West Wind Aviation, Pronto Airways, Cameco, AREVA Resources, Points Athabasca, Shell Fuel, and Al’s Place.

In addition to the three day Christmas in the North event, this year, each community received an “Early Childhood Learning Fair” kit. This kit consists of educational games, toys and props that encourage activity, literacy and engagement. Each community has a care worker that administers the program. The fair program is quite popular with new mothers, and with a kit in each community, the fair can now be held as often as needed.
