Become an Ambassador of Indigenous 150+, a film and conversation series!


Canada World Youth is proud to announce a new partnership between CWY, Indigenous 150+ and Nation Talk. With this new partnership comes exciting opportunities for our Indigenous Alumni!

Be a changemaker

As a CWY Alumni we invite you to become an Ambassador of Indigenous 150+, a film and conversation series. You will help choose a film and moderate a conversation with local experts. Join us in bringing this cultural event to your region. This initiative was developed as a response to the TRC 94 Calls To Action. An honorarium will be provided.

Daryl Kootenay, CWY alumni, became a changemaker when he hosted an Indigenous 150+ event at ArtsPlace in Canmore, B. C. This is what he had to say about it:

“My experience with the Indigenous 150+ initiative was very special and meaningful. Not only did I get the opportunity to be a part of spreading awareness of indigenous history and issues but also to connect and make new relationships with indigenous and non-indigenous peoples who care and want to help for the better.”

Interview a changemaker

As a CWY Alumni we invite you to amplify the positive stories in your community by interviewing a changemaker and building your and your community’s profile. No equipment necessary. Interview guidelines and a tip sheet will be provided. Start your own National podcast on NationTalk.

If you are interested in either of these amazing opportunities,
please respond by October 1st, 2018.

 For more information or to confirm your interest, please contact Vanessa Ferreira-Valente,Alumni and Events Coordinator / 514-931-3526 #338 /
