Indspire prepares to honour Indigenous achievement with in-person 2022 Indspire Awards ceremony

April 7, 2022.

Ohsweken, ONIndspire is pleased to announce the much-anticipated return of the in-person Indspire Awards in 2022. This year’s event will not only be a place to honour exceptional Indigenous achievers, but will also act as an unofficial opening for an in-person celebration of community resilience after two years of reduced contact with friends and loved ones.

“At Indspire, we have seen the resilience of Indigenous communities and students during a trying time,” said Indspire president and CEO Mike DeGagné. “Looking to a hopeful future, we want to honour their achievements. We look forward to seeing you in person this year.”

The Indspire Awards represent the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own people. Their stories are shared in a nationally broadcast celebration that showcases the diversity and accomplishments of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
