Indigenous Community Visioning

Thank you for your interest in helping to shape the first Indigenous Community Vision for Hamilton.


The March 2022 Virtual Sessions are the first series of conversations to build an Indigenous Community Vision for Hamilton.  This event is hosted by the Coalition of Hamilton Indigenous Leadership (CHIL).

On March 11th 2022, we will launch the Indigenous Community Visioning in-person with community at the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre’s “Elders & Youth” Social. 

The Coalition of Hamilton Indigenous Leadership (formerly the HEDAC) is a collaborative of Indigenous organizational leaders responding to the needs of the Indigenous community of Hamilton.  CHIL staff and member agencies work to improve resources for the urban Indigenous community of Hamilton and advance Indigenous voices across the city. 


CHIL member agencies include the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre (HRIC), Niagara Peninsula Area
Aboriginal Management Board (NPAAMB), Ontario Aboriginal Housing Services Inc. (OAHS), Sacajawea Non-Profit Housing, Native Women's Centre, and De Dwa Da Dehs Nye^s Aboriginal Health Centre.


The development of an Indigenous community vision for Hamilton comes from our ongoing conversations with Indigenous community members, Indigenous agencies, and Indigenous leaders to ensure Hamilton remains a place where Indigenous community members can thrive. CHIL wants to spread our message of hope and compassion. We believe that a single action can make a difference in the community, and that collective action can greatly impact the world. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our team works tirelessly each day to contribute their part to the greater good.
