Under its former name, the Aboriginal Human Resource Council, IW has worked extensively with Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations in the public and private sectors.

Established in 1998, IW is a national not-for-profit organization with a mandate to advance the engagement of Indigenous Peoples in Canada’s economy. Indigenous Works is dedicated to its mission to close the socio-economic gap, helping First Nation, Métis and Inuit people move closer to the standard of living enjoyed by the majority of non-Indigenous Canadians.
IW has a methodical and systems-based approach to developing effective Indigenous employment and inclusive workplace inclusion strategies. Our organization is ISO certified, one of only a few Indigenous organizations in Canada to have attained that certification.
In its Indigenous employment and human resource work throughout Canada, IW has developed many different models and diagnostics. These models stem from our extensive work with public and private sector clients. One example of a model we have developed from our 25 years of working with clients is our innovative Indigenous Inclusion Continuum model. This model is used to map your Indigenous employment strategies, practices, and systems. The model is instrumental to determine where there are strengths and areas of improvements needed in your approach to Indigenous employment and workplace inclusion.
Contact Indigenous Works (IW) to discuss how to take your next best step toward a meaningful Indigenous inclusion strategy that will progressively move your organization toward success. We look forward to working with you!
