I know we've been quiet for a while and that's because we've been working really hard on some HUGE things. Its taken a massive amount of energy and effort but the roll out has begun!
NAIG MASTERS is here! Yes its that time of year again and the North American Indigenous games are back. This year it's 500 of the top Indigenous athletes from everywhere in North America coming to Toronto to compete for the big titles. AND in a fantastic bit of news, JOBREADYCPR will be staffing the event! No numbers as of yet but it looks like some serious experience time for our AMAZING Indigenous Medics.
A NEW WEBSITE has been in development for months now as you may or may not have noticed. A fantastic web development team has been working tirelessly on my insane demands and have produced the best look for us yet! Check out some of our new sections and portals with more to come. Keep up on our transition into a possible NOT FOR PROFIT model in the near future!
