Hear the voices of community in the 2022 Annual Report
From June 2020 through to December 2022, Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund's (IPRF) purpose was to enhance the resilience of Indigenous communities and organizations responding to the urgent needs brought on by the unknown and critical challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In 2022, IPRF went through ten rounds of application call-outs. IPRF’s commitment to uplifting applicants remained a high priority. IPRF’s community was invited to our Winter Solstice gathering at the end of the year in the presence of the Governor General of Canada, her Excellency, Mary Simon, as the guest speaker. Participants shared their voices and stories, and through these sharings, we heard that our hightouch, and personal approach was appreciated.
The stories in this year's Annual Report will offer a glimpse of the diversity of Indigenous Peoples in Canada. IPRF has the privilege to uplift and share these stories with you and recognizes that all stories are meaningful. Unfortunately, we cannot share them all, though we wish we could.
