Crossroads established two new positions in 2016 that ensure the Indigenous community have a voice and representation in Canada’s longest running daily television show, 100 Huntley Street in segments called First Peoples Voices.

“I am proud to be a Metis. My family line has a history of justice advocates and politicians standing in the gap for those who cannot.” – Crystal Lavallee, First Peoples Voices Producer for 100 Huntley Street  

Indigenous Producer, Crystal Lavallee (Metis) travels across Canada to capture stories that educate, celebrate and bring awareness to Indigenous history, culture and people. First Peoples Voices is part of Crossroads’ response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s recommendations that support Indigenous voices on culture, spirituality and languages.   Outreach Ambassador, Bev Hadland works to build bridges between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Resources are mobilized and shipped to northern communities to aid in community development.
