Last night in Ottawa, the 2022 Indspire Awards recipients were announced during a special in-person celebration of Indigenous achievement.
After two years of reduced contact with friends and community, the Awards brought together Indigenous professionals and youth in a variety of fields, including: the arts; business and commerce, culture, heritage and spirituality; education; health; law and justice; public service; sports; and lifetime achievement. Three Youth Awards winners were also honoured for their accomplishments, serving as role models to other First Nations, Inuit and Métis youth in their communities and across Canada.
