Victoria McKenzie Grant


Moving Red Canoe

Meet Victoria:

Victoria McKenzie Grant, Loon Clan, Teme-Augama Anishnabai Kway, (Woman of the Deep-Water People) whose Traditional Territory is the Temagami area in Northern Ontario and a status Indian registered as a member of the Temagami First Nation, a status conferred through Canada’s Indian Act.

My most important roles are those of wife, mother, and grandmother.

I have always been and continue to be a passionate advocate for more robust engagement of Indigenous Peoples. I would describe myself as community builder.

I have spent most of my career in Administration and Managerial roles. Today I work mostly as a consultant.

I have been a volunteer in the Not-for-profit world for most of my life and have served as a director on several Philanthropic boards. Currently I am active on two boards, serving as Past Chair of the Canadian Canoe Museum, and Chair of the Counseling Foundation of Canada. I am a past Chair and director of Community Foundations of Canada.

I have had the opportunity to be part of founding circles for three organizations, The Temagami Community Foundation, the Circle on Philanthropy and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada. Most recently, was Team Lead for the Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund, and a co-facilitator in bringing Indigenous peoples together in the creation and development of this organization. https://www.iprfund.ca/EN/home

I love to be outside and, on the water, in a canoe or kayak, on skis, on snowshoes, but my greatest joy in her life today is spending time with my grandchildren, something I don’t get enough of.
