Our mission is to catalyze societal change by inspiring Indigenous & Non-Indigenous relationship building, strengthening community well-being and advancing the next generation of leaders. Our vision is that all Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Peoples work together, interconnected and interdependent, for the benefit of future generations.
As Indigenous and Non-Indigenous partners, we are committed to working together. HIP's board of directors is 50% Indigenous, 50% non-Indigenous, 50% women, 50% men, 50% Rotarian and geographically dispersed across Canada.
Today our work focuses on:
UNDERSTANDING THE PAST
HIP delivers HIP Talks, Change the Narrative and other transformational events that dispel myths and provides important lessons about the complex, yet critically important, topic of reconciliation.
MOVING FORWARD TOGETHER
HIP connects Indigenous and Non-Indigenous peoples to build relationships while inspiring them to work together on community challenges.
What People Are Saying
"You have acted on the calls to actions outlined in the Truth & Reconciliation report and created a program that will educate all Canadians about our shared history, but more importantly, our shared future."
— PERRY BELLEGARDE National Chief, Assembly of First Nations
"It was a privilege to partner with HIP to deliver a viewing of First Contact & participate on a panel discussion hosted in the Ontario Lieutenant Governor’s suite. The format provided attendees with the opportunity to confront the truth about Indigenous People & their inherent rights in Canada."
— JP GLADU, CCAB President & CEO
