Help us Help Fort Simpson, NWT

Spring 2021 arrived in Fort Simpson with a fresh challenge for the whole community. On May 8 the water of the Mackenzie River rose to a level where the community began to be evacuated and over the following days 700 people were displaced.

In the weeks since the worst of the flooding we have spoken with our many friends, the community leaders, and businesses that have been impacted and we know they have a long road ahead of them. 

The community is resilient and will rebuild but it will take support! 

The team at Nahanni River Adventures has teamed up with Nahanni River guide and artisan Ursula Kilbridge to raise funds. Ursula will be auctioning some of her fine jewelery, and the proceeds will go directly towards the community in Fort Simpson.

A hand-crafted silver pendant with an ethically sourced blue turquoise – do you see a water scene, or planet earth possibly?

A beautiful hand crafted silver cuff, with a custom design inspired by the waves Ursula guides on with us at NRA/CRE.

Ursula will be making a post where you can find the auction details here –

Nahanni River Adventures will match the winning bids for two pieces of jewellery up to $300 for the cuff and $300 for the pendant!

Will you help us help the people of the Nahanni?
