The CCRC wants to highlight the great work done by The Indigenous Support Project (TISP). Read below for more details.
The Indigenous Support Project is celebrating 3 years of providing relief materials and cultural education to various Indigenous communities around the globe. They help individuals and youth in the Toronto area with food security, cultural education, peer support, community outreach and much more. During the pandemic, they also helped with Canada-wide Covid relief, and used their network to help those in other countries such as New Mexico, Nepal and Bangladesh. Their work is dedicated to funding and delivering charitable services with an Indigenous twist, including integrating knowledge of Western and Indigenous traditional agriculture & farming, food security, traditional land-based knowledge, water purification, housing rights, environmental issues, environmental ethics, land reclaims, social justice and education about Indigenous peoples and practices.
