CIBC has been a proud supporter of the Indspire (formally known as NAAF) since 1993. Indspire is a non-profit organization that promotes the development and education of Aboriginal peoples, especially youth. Through Indspire, we also support the Indspire Awards, Soaring and Rivers to Success Mentoring Program.

The Indspire Awards

CIBC has been a proud sponsor of the Indspire Awards since their inception. We are committed to the high values they stand for: building community pride; recognizing excellence; and encouraging role models to stimulate further achievement among Canada's Indigenous people.

Soaring: Indigenous Youth Career Conferences

Indspire sponsors this career fair series that gives Aboriginal students exposure to new career and employment areas. CIBC supports Soaring by providing information on career opportunities, competency development, labour market characteristics and special programs to help Aboriginal youth.

Rivers to Success: Mentoring Indigenous Youth

CIBC is the founding sponsor of this program focusing on positioning students for success as they make their transition into the workforce. This program connects established CIBC mentors who have excelled in their career with Aboriginal students near the end of their post-secondary education for a rewarding experience for both mentor and student.
