June Girvan has devoted her adult life to nurturing, protecting, affirming and giving voice to children and young people. After her retirement, she established the J’Nikira Dinqinesh Education Centre (JDEC), named for her children, in Ottawa, Ontario. The JDEC commemorates pioneers who championed anti-slavery, human rights and social justice in Canada, and bequeathed to us, our North Star legacy. The JDEC’s community is based on honouring and celebrating the moral compass of fellow Canadians for their efforts as Keepers of our North Star Legacy, and passing it on to new generations.
