Project support: Welcome to Will!

For the next nine weeks, Will Lafrance is our new Project Support Coordinator!

Funded through the Aboriginal Pathways to Employment program, he will be coordinating Public Service Announcements for theResonating Reconciliation project, helping organize the upcoming Ottawa Red Jam Slam, and working to support the Ontario Independent Music Archive, particularly in collecting more Aboriginal music.

Will grew up on the small Mohawk reservation Akwesasne, listening to the local community radio station CKON-FM, and realized just how much of an impact it can have.The power of music is not lost on this guy. Will is very excited to start helping the NCRA anyway he can. He recently finished his studies in Theatre Arts at Algonquin College. He is a part-time actor and a full-time lover of fun. Will specializes in community outreach and program coordination.

As the newest addition, Will is excited to start working on and learning more about the Resonating Reconciliation project. That chapter in Canadian history has always intrigued him and he is excited to dive into it.


Will recently coordinated a theatre program for at-risk aboriginal youth. He has been in over 10 different theatre productions and two short films in the past two years. He has experience and training in teaching, coaching, and stage combat choreography. 

We're very excited to be working with him. Welcome to Will!
