Amarok Society

Gem Munro has devoted his life and career to improving educational opportunities for disadvantaged people across Canada and abroad.

Pursuit of this objective carried him into residence in troubled communities across most of Canada, before carrying him overseas.

He is presently a Director of Amarok Society, a registered Canadian charity that provides education programmes to the very poor in Bangladesh and Pakistan, and is now beginning an initiative to develop opportunities for Indigenous youth in Canada. Gem is also an author and artist whose current book (which he has here today) is a critically acclaimed novel drawing upon his years of extraordinary experiences with aboriginal communities in Canada. (Sale of his book is a major fundraiser for Amarok Society.) For their work, Gem and his wife, Dr Tanyss Munro, were recipients of Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals.
