THE NEED

For measures like human security, education, and standard of living, Canada is 10th in the world on the 2016 UN Human Development Index. However, due to the on-going effects of colonization and the legacies of residential schools, Canada’s rank falls to 63rd when Indigenous peoples are considered. This drop is reflected in the inequities that Indigenous peoples experience at higher rates than most non-Indigenous Canadians, such as poverty, substandard housing, food insecurity, and barriers to educational and employment opportunities. Indigenous children and youth are especially affected.

The impact of COVID-19 on Indigenous youth has also been significant, leading to increased social isolation and diminished opportunities. As the driving force of their families and communities, we know that this generation of Indigenous children and youth hold the knowledge and potential to defy such disparities and to create positive change. Right To Play PLAY's leaders witnessed children and youth take charge of their lives, and become leaders for their peers and their communities.
