About IPC

About

The Indigenous Partnership Council (IPC) is comprised of representatives from local, provincial and national Indigenous communities and groups, who are working collaboratively with the 2022 Canada Games Host Society in an effort to reinforce the presence and engagement of Indigenous communities in the events leading up to and during the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.

The IPC features representation from the Six Nations of the Grand River, Niagara Regional Native Friendship Centre, Fort Erie Friendship Centre, The Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Metis Nation of Ontario, NPAAMB, Inuit and Brock University.

This council, along with the Host Society, will aim to create a unique cross-cultural experience for all at 2022 Canada Summer Games by sharing the distinct cultures, traditions, songs, dances, and craftsmanship of First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples.

In order to accomplish that, the IPC will play an important role in the Games’ Opening and Closing Ceremonies, Niagara Place, the 13 for 13 Cultural Festival, and the celebrations surrounding the reintroduction of the Indigenous game of lacrosse to the Canada Games.
