Indigenous Engagement Canada is a win-win scenario!

Indigenous Engagement Canada is committed to meeting people where they are…

  • Small businesses in Canada are striving to stay alive. By educating them on how to successfully engage with Indigenous communities, families and individuals, Indigenous people benefit by having access to more products and services and the small businesses have the benefit of increased sales.
  • Non-Indigenous non-profits are doing their best to service their clients, a group that often includes Indigenous peoples of various ages, experiences, and cultures. By educating these agencies on the barriers and challenges they will see in Indigenous homes and communities, Indigenous people benefit from respectful, informed service while the agencies achieve their goal – provided services that truly assist.
  • Non-Indigenous individuals wish to learn and understand to levels that are just not supported in our present educational systems. IEC can assist with that, ensuring that respectful bi-cultural relationships increase in number.

IEC is committed to the implementation of the
Truth & Reconciliation Commission’s 94 Calls to Action.

    We, at Indigenous Engagement Canada, understand that business is keen to engage with, partner with, and sell to the Indigenous peoples of Canada.

    We are ready to assist you to take that step!
