The Toys for the North campaign is bringing toys to Nunatsiavut Communities on Labrador’s North Coast, Black Tickle, and Mary’s Harbour.

For the fifth consecutive year will be delivering Christmas happiness and joy to children in Labrador.

The purpose of the toy drive is to bring smiles to the children who live in Canada’s North where the expense and isolation often mean that they go without toys at Christmas time.

The program is a joint effort of the Canadian Toy Association, Thomson Terminals, Royal Canadian Air Force, RCMP and numerous other sponsors, donors and volunteers. 

The RCMP, together with community volunteers, family and friends joined together in a makeshift Christmas workshop to sort and box the toys for their finals destinations.  This year toys will be delivered to all Nunatsiavut Communities on Labrador’s North Coast, Black Tickle, and Mary’s Harbour.

All the toys have been sorted and packaged and the RCMP will co-ordinate the delivery of the toys and wrapping paper with the assistance of Happy Valley-Goose Bay RCMP Air Services to transport the toys to the isolated locations. RCMP members in partnership with each community’s organizations or councils will then take on the responsibility of ensuring the toys are given to children before Christmas.

“B” Division RCMP is thankful for the donations from the “Toys for the North” annual toy drive and benefits from the partnerships, sponsors, and volunteers will be seen on the smiling faces of the children when they receive their gift.  This would not be possible without the generosity and compassion of everyone involved.
