CASE STUDY | Supporting Indigenous Innovation: The Case of the First People’s Innovation Centre

The members of First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities across Turtle Island have a unique, invaluable approach to innovation that deserves to be recognized and celebrated. In this era of reconciliation and decolonization, how can we promote Indigenous innovation and recognize its distinctive features? How can we support Indigenous innovators to enter the job market and make their mark?  

This case study offers a closer look at what the First People’s Innovation Center has to offer.
