Indigenous Education, Canada’s Future

About Indspire

Indspire is an Indigenous-led registered charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people for the long-term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities, and Canada.

Vision: Enriching Canada through Indigenous education and by inspiring achievement. Mission: In partnership with Indigenous, private and public sector stakeholders, Indspire educates, connects and invests in Indigenous people so they will achieve their highest potential.

Indspire is led by Indigenous people for Indigenous people. We serve First Nation, Inuit, and Métis students in remote communities and urban centres across Canada.

With the support of our funding partners, we disburse financial awards, deliver programs, and share resources with the goal of closing the gap in Indigenous education.

The K-12 Indspire Institute is a virtual resource centre that serves educators, communities, and other stakeholders who are committed to improving kindergarten to grade 12 success for Indigenous youth.

We are the largest funder of Indigenous education outside the federal government: to date, Indspire has disbursed almost $65 million through close to 20,000 bursaries and scholarships to Indigenous students.

Each year, we present the Indspire Awards, a nationally broadcast, gala celebration of the successes achieved by Indigenous people.

WELCOME BACK!


Can having a Positive Attitude help you be a better Student?

Indeed having a positive attitude can assist students to reach their educational dreams.  Having a positive attitude, whether you are a 3rd year student or 1st year student, will influence the outcome of your studies.  From remembering the tons of information that you will be going through to focusing and absorbing the information that you need for writing your papers and exams.  Having a positive attitude will ensure that you walk through your educational journey with excitement, determination and knowing you will succeed.
