Spend an evening with us in support of Indigenous Education!

Join us to help raise funds for Indspire’s programs that educate, connect, and invest in Indigenous people so they will reach their highest potential. A Feast in the Forest will feature inspiring moments and incredible entertainment set within Toronto’s beautiful Don Valley, traditional territories of the Ojibway, the Anishinaabe, the Mississaugas of the Credit and the Haudenosaunee.

Celebrate the summer solstice, National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous Peoples Day with Indspire. This is your chance to stand tall as a leader in Canada driving systemic change to improve educational outcomes for First Nation, Inuit and Métis students.

“Even in these very challenging economic times and perhaps especially in these very challenging economic times, at RPIA, we recognize that there are segments of our society who have a much harder time of it than others. Canada’s Indigenous population has been left behind for far too long and we feel we want to do our part to help rectify that wrong by supporting Indspire and the incredible work they do with education. Only through education can the opportunity gap be truly closed and provide meaningful equal opportunity for all Canadians.”
