Indspire was selected as a unique Indigenous-led charity that focuses on supporting Indigenous education. Indspire received funding to showcase the Indspire Youth Laureates Cross Canada Tour in highly-interactive panel discussions to be hosted in seven cities – Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Saskatoon, Vancouver, Winnipeg and Yellowknife.
The first tour will be launched at the Indspire Soaring Career Conference to be held in Ottawa on March 23, 2017 at The Westin Hotel. Following the launch, there will be one tour held on a university campus, each month (except for July and August) until November 2017, with the closing celebration to be held in conjunction with the Indspire National Gathering at the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth in Montreal. These two sessions will be recorded for broader distribution, as they will have the largest audiences (approx. 1,000+ at each).
