How We Work

A principle goal of the Circle is to build connections and foster collaboration.

To this end, the Circle develops programs that foster more and better conversations, connections, and relationships among Aboriginal Peoples and philanthropic organizations; deepen our understanding of key issues in Aboriginal communities such as Aboriginal education, land and people, Aboriginal health; and secure key partnerships and memberships that leverage the Circle’s capacity and reach.

Most of our work happens within our Collaborative Circles which bring together members of The Circle and others, government representatives, and for-profit businesses and organizations also working actively to connect with and support the empowerment of Aboriginal Peoples in Canada.
