Indspire Awards:
Celebrating Indigenous Achievement

May 11, 2023 | Edmonton, Alberta

The Indspire Awards represents the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own people. 2023 is a significant year for the Indspire Awards as it marks 30 years of honouring First Nations, Inuit, and Métis individuals who demonstrate outstanding achievement across Turtle Island and beyond. Their stories are shared in a nationally broadcast celebration that showcases the diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
