Becoming an Ally with the Legacy of Hope Foundation

We are proud to partner with the Legacy of Hope Foundation, our official charity. With their help we are committed to providing resources that support education and raise awareness of Indigenous history and its impact on Canada.

Who is the Legacy of Hope Foundation?


The Legacy of Hope Foundation 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.

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
