Our Mission

The Indigenous Leadership Initiative  is dedicated to facilitating the strengthening of Indigenous nationhood for the fulfillment of the Indigenous cultural responsibility to our lands, the emergence of new generations of Indigenous leaders, and helping communities develop the skills and capacity that they will need as they continue to become fully respected and equally treated partners in Canada’s system of governance and its economic and social growth. Learn about our beginning.

“A movement is growing up from the land, from the Elders, from the youth, and from a new crop of women leaders, calling for Indigenous leadership on the land.”
