What We Do
We aim to foster Inuit and Northern Indigenous youth in finding their own positive stories and modes of self-expression, to build healthy relationships with adults and peers, and inspire quiet leadership that builds allies and community through positive thought and actions.
The Arctic Rose Foundation is proud to be a Laureate of the 2019 Arctic Inspiration Prize for our Kamajiit Program
The Arctic Inspiration Prize: As the largest annual prize in Canada with a focus on the Arctic, the Arctic Inspiration Prize (AIP) encourages, enables and celebrates the inspiring achievements of the people of the North. The AIP recognizes diverse teams and enables their innovative projects in the fields of education, sustainable housing, community economic development, health, performing arts, traditional knowledge, language, and science. Each year, the AIP awards up to $3 million: one $1 million prize, up to four prizes of up to $500,000 each, and up to seven youth prizes of up to $100,000 each.
The AIP is owned and governed by the northern-led AIP Charitable Trust and supported by Indigenous organizations, governments, industry, philanthropy, and many other partners from the North and South, with management support provided by the Rideau Hall Foundation.
