A very special donation from Canada's North


The Naval Marine Archive ­ is very pleased to announce a significant donation to the Archive.

Mr. Greg Cayen, KOStG, HMH, President and CEO of NCC Investment Group of Iqaluit, Nunavut, has very kindly made a gift to the Naval Marine Archive of $10,000.

Mr. Cayen is aware that a portion of the Collection relates to Nunavut. The Lord of Wrentnall, who is a member of the Board of the NMA and lives in the County, approached Mr. Cayen to see if he would participate in the current fundraising drive. Mr. Cayen did not hesitate. This is the first time in the NMA's history that a financial donation has been made from Nunavut, and reflects the growing national importance of the NMA.
