Indigenous Perspectives Society


Indigenous Perspectives Society (IPS) is a charitable and not-for-profit social enterprise that offers training programs and services that help foster a deeper understanding of Indigenous perspectives, cultural differences, and the need for self-determination. By creating excellence through training and leadership, we help strengthen lives and build successful relationships in our communities.

Our participants include leaders, government employees, service providers, entrepreneurs, educators, social workers, parents, caregivers, and youth who are using their training both professionally and personally in communities throughout British Columbia and across Canada.
