Indigenous Partnership Council

Sharing the diverse cultures of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit peoples.



The Indigenous Partnership Council (IPC) was comprised of representatives from local, provincial and national Indigenous communities and groups, who were working collaboratively with the 2022 Canada Games Host Society in an effort to reinforce the presence and engagement of Indigenous communities in the events leading up to and during the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.

The IPC featured representation from the Six Nations of the Grand River, Niagara Regional Native Friendship Centre, Fort Erie Friendship Centre, The Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Métis Nation of Ontario, NPAAMB, Inuit and Brock University.

This council was established during the early planning stages for the 2022 Canada Games to provide voluntary advice to the Niagara 2022 Host Society concerning all matters Indigenous in relation to the Games, including (i) the inclusion of Indigenous participation and protocols at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies; (ii) Indigenous performing arts inclusion in Games programming; and (iii) the celebration of the reintroduction of the Indigenous game of lacrosse to the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.

After performing this key role, some members of the IPC agreed to participate in Indigenous programming during this summer’s 2022 Canada Games.
