The Legacy Of Hope Foundation
How To Be An Ally Toolkit!
The Legacy of Hope Foundation (LHF) is a national, Indigenous-led, charitable organization that has been working to promote healing and Reconciliation in Canada for over 23 years, and Forward Summit's official nominated charity!

Their goal is to educate Canadians about the history and existing intergenerational impacts from attending the Residential and Day School and/or being involved in the Child Welfare System on Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, Métis) Survivors, their families, and communities.

The LHF encourages people to address discrimination and injustices in order to contribute to the equality, dignity, and respectful treatment of Indigenous Peoples and to foster Reconciliation.

The LHF offers more than 30 educational exhibitions designed to raise awareness of Indigenous history. These exhibitions are offered free of charge and available for borrowing. The LHF also provides age-appropriate curriculum for K-12 and adult learners, Activity Guides, Workshops and Training sessions, Podcasts, all specifically created to educate Canadians about Indigenous history and the joint history of Residential and Day Schools, the Sixties Scoop, and other acts of colonization.

The Toolkit!

The LHF has developed this toolkit to help individuals and corporations access information on how to become a great ally to Indigenous Peoples. By working with the LHF as our official nominated charity, It is our hope that people will find it a valuable resource to have so that we can all work together towards Reconciliation.

Practicing allyship is one of the key steps we can take to positively influence the socio economics outcomes for Indigenous Peoples. The LHF has developed this toolkit to offer some practical action you can take to successfully partner with Indigenous Peoples. This is a wonderful opportunity for Canadians to learn the true history of Indigenous Peoples, acknowledge what happened and make sure it never happens again. Together, we can create a brighter tomorrow for future generations
