Why invest in Indigenous Education?

Education is the great equalizer.

Statistics show that when Indigenous people have the same levels of education as non-Indigenous people, their employment rates are also they same. 

Education benefits communities. 

Investing in one Indigenous student creates a ripple effect, benefiting their family, their community and future generations. 

Investing in Indigenous education is an investment in Canada’s future. 

Why invest with Indspire?

We’re known for delivering value to our corporate partners and helping them achieve their business and Corporate Social Responsibility objectives. Many of our partners have been working with Indspire to improve Indigenous education and connect with Indigenous youth for well over a decade – we look forward to working with many more over the next decade.

Meet Your Corporate Social Responsibility Objectives

As Canada’s largest Indigenous charity, Indspire has many sponsorship opportunities that provide direct access to the fastest growing demographic in the country.

Through our various programs for Indigenous students and educators, plus the annual Indspire Awards, we can assist you to fulfill your corporate social responsibility and business objectives.

Tap Into Canada’s Fastest Growing Demographic

Workplace shortages are expected in many sectors of the Canadian economy in the coming years due to global demographic changes. Many corporations in Canada recognize the young expanding demographic of Indigenous youth as an untapped resource that is vital to Canada’s future economic prosperity.

The Indigenous population is the fastest growing demographic in Canada with 44% of the estimated 1.67 million Indigenous people in this country under the age of 24.1

Indspire can connect you directly with this future workforce to build skilled capacity in every sector.
