What We Do

The Coalition of Hamilton Indigenous Leadership (CHIL) is a collaborative of Indigenous organizational leaders. 


CHIL receives federal, provincial, and municipal funding which is then allocated to local Indigenous agencies to collaboratively and strategically meet the needs of the Indigenous community.

CHIL receives funding from the City of Hamilton to support Indigenous-led programs and services reducing Indigenous experiences of poverty in Hamilton.

CHIL receives provincial funding through the Ministry of Indigenous Affairs.  This funding has been used to help draft Hamilton's first Indigenous community vision.
