One of our core beliefs is to support and develop the communities in which we work. Our active involvement with local sports teams, not-for-profit groups, educational institutions and Aboriginal groups allows us to make a real and impactful difference.
We believe that our young people are the future. Whether we are sponsoring hockey teams, supporting educational programs, or organizing community events, our focus is to provide youth with opportunities to grow and develop the skills they need to not only succeed, but excel at what they do.

Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta provides gender specific programming for girls within the RMWB. We have been providing programming for girls in the region since 1979, (First as a Big Sisters Society and for the last 7 years as Girls Incorporated).
While the United Way is one of our funders, we do a great deal of fundraising, as do most not for profits. Girls Inc. does not charge for programming, as we do not want finances to be a barrier for participation. Our Mandate is To Inspire ALL Girls To Be Strong, Smart and Bold. We are very fortunate to have a generous business, corporate support for our programming to allow us to continue to offer quality programming at no charge.
Bouchier has always been more than a source for funds, as a company they support our mandate and take a very personal interest in the work we do with young girls. Whether it is support for our annual golf tournament, or our Woman of inspiration or any one of our programs, we have always been able to count on their generousity, be it through a donation or through participation. We use the success of Bouchier and the roles that strong, smart and bold women have as examples for the girls we work with on what they can accomplish in their lives. We showcase the amazing inspirational women in the region, and through the support from Bouchier, we work to help grow the next generation of inspirational women.
Bouchier Group announces new $125,000 funding partnership with Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta and the Women of Inspiration Program
As a continued partner to the Girls Inc of Northern Alberta, this is the second vehicle Bouchier has donated as a way of transportation to deliver programs to various communities in the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo.
A message from Nanase Tonda, Executive Director
Thanks to your vehicle donation, Girls Inc. of Northern Alberta has reached over 2150 girls through 135 programs in 18 communities across RMWB since 2016. These include Indigenous communities, namely Anzac, Fort McKay and Janvier.
Together with Bouchier, we are braking many layers of barriers surrounding girls – especially those who would not have had access to our programs due to geographical constraints. We intend to accelerate our outreach efforts, so that more girls are inspired to be strong, smart and bold.
We are also excited to work with Bouchier to showcase Women of Inspiration stories for the next five years. Both Bouchier and Girls Inc. share the mutual vision: you can’t be, what you can’t see. Through this initiative, we can show role-models to girls, engage women in girls empowerment, enable our community to discover hidden gems and create positive dialogue. Our strategic partnership builds the future and tomorrow’s leaders.
