Our mission is to build meaningful and equitable relationships between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Peoples. Our vision is that within a generation, all Canadians will act on the understanding that we are all interconnected and interdependent.
HIP is a nation-wide partnership between Indigenous Peoples and Rotarian's. We are extremely proud to tell everyone that our board of directors is 50% Indigenous, 50% non-Indigenous, 50% women, 50% men and geographically dispersed from coast to coast.
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 and inspires them to work together.
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
