Campaign to save Katimavik charity gets underway

Submitted by on April 24, 2012 – 4:46 pmNo Comment

As part of the government’s belt-tightening measures – that is to say massive cuts to social programs that came via the 2012 federal budget – Katimavik has been forced to close up shop.  But not without a fight. In a new YouTube video being circulated through Opposition party portals and the left side of the Canadian social-network scene, opponents of the cuts to Katimavik are calling for a reinstatement of the charity’s funds. While the government reneged on its funding agreement with Katimavik, which was valid until March 2013, believers feel “there’s still time” to rally enough support to keep the charity afloat. Created in 1977 under the government of former prime minister Pierre Trudeau, Katimavik has for over three decades  educated and empowered Canadian youth by providing volunteer services in vulnerable communities across the country. During the 2011-12 year, it’s reported 1,150 young Canadians volunteered in the Katimavik program.
