Cash from crime will fund cadet programs in three northern reserves, the province announced Thursday.
More than $38,000 will be used to purchase uniforms and healthy snacks for cadets in the Nisichawaysihk Cree Nation Cadet Corps and similar programs in Norway House and Cross Lake.
The cash comes from $1.2 million that will be doled out this summer from the criminal property forfeiture fund, the pot of money the province gleans from cash, cars and other assets seized from criminals, even before a conviction.
The cadet program helps the RCMP establish and strengthen relationships with young people who do volunteer work and stay fit.
