About

Indspire is a national Indigenous registered charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people for the long-term benefit of them, their families and communities, and Canada.

Our vision is to enrich Canada through Indigenous education and by inspiring achievement. In partnership with Indigenous, private and public sector stakeholders, Indspire educates, connects and invests in First Nations, Inuit and Métis people so they will achieve their highest potential.

We serve Indigenous students in rural and remote communities and urban centres across Canada which is why travel is so important to spread awareness of Indspire’s awards, programs and resources. With the goal of closing the gap in Indigenous education, we strive to use travel to connect students with the tools needed to succeed.

Indspire’s work continues to be recognized as a model of donor accountability, financial transparency and cost-efficiency. Maclean’s has recognized Indspire as among Canada’s best charities in 2020. And once again, Charity Intelligence Canada has given Indspire their four-star rating, naming us a Top 10 Canadian Impact Charity in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

In 2018-2019, Indspire awarded more than $16.3 million nationwide through 5,553 financial bursaries, scholarships and awards through our Building Brighter Futures program.

Indspire also provides many vital resources and programs, like Rivers to Success: Mentoring Indigenous Students, to help students graduate and go on to reach their full potential.

Soaring: Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering
At Soaring, high school students learn about career and post-secondary education options. Students participate in workshops, learn about financial support, and meet Canada’s top employers.

National Gathering for Indigenous Education:
Each year, National Gathering brings together hundreds of educators interested in improving the educational outcomes of K-12 Indigenous students. Attendees from across Canada share innovations and successful practices that improve the classroom outcomes of their Indigenous students.

Teach for Tomorrow:
A partnership between Indspire, Winnipeg School Division, and the University of Winnipeg’s Faculty of Education, Teach for Tomorrow encourages and supports First Nations, Inuit and Métis students to fulfill their ambition to become teachers.

Guiding the Journey: Indigenous Educator Awards
Guiding the Journey recognizes and celebrates outstanding educators for their achievement and innovation in Indigenous education.

Indspire Awards:
Representing the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own people, each year we recognize outstanding Indigenous achievers. These positive role models are a source of inspiration for Indigenous youth and exemplify Indigenous excellence. The ceremony is broadcast nationally on CBC and APTN each June.
