Q. Wait. What’s a Laureate?
A. Good question! Indspire’s Laureates are people who have received an Indspire Award.

The Indspire Awards are hosted annually in cities across the country to honour extraordinary First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals, including three youth recipients. The Laureates for this tour were chosen from a list of remarkable young people who have received Indspire Awards in the youth categories.
