The "Inspiring Approaches to First Nation, Métis and Inuit Learning" Initiative was a huge success. Thank you to all 266 entrants, partners, award sponsors, network partners, and Initiative advisors. Click here to see all the award winners.
We had our Summit from April 16 - 18, 2012, where we celebrated all of our 30 award winners. The summit featured keynote talks with President Mary Simon of Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami, President Clément Chartier of the Métis National Council, the Right Honourable Paul Martin, former National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Phil Fontaine and Commissioner Wilton Littlechild of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It was truly an inspiring event and we hope that the momentum continues.

This doesn't end here. Changemakers.com has a new feature called "Changeshops". Through this tool, social innovators (like you!), create virtual storefronts (“changeshops”) for their ideas and projects. Each Changeshop contains core information, demonstrating an innovation’s growth and impact, and serves as a place for posting offers and needs. Changeshop helps innovators find the funding, networks, and talent they need to grow. You can convert your entry to Changeshop by visiting here.
If you would like to contact us further about the Initiative, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Once again, the Changemakers team thanks everyone for their support.
Our mantra is “Everyone a Changemaker.” That means you. Join us. And be at the center of change.
