Here at Animikii, we attribute our success directly with giving back to our communities. We don’t ‘balance’ our giving back work with our contracted work nor do we see these activities as separate. To us, they are the same. Our business depends on our ability to effectively give back to the community, just as much as it depends on our ability to deliver great products and services to our clients.

Our giving back efforts stem from a desire to find better outcomes for Indigenous Peoples. Our monetary giving is focused primarily on lowering barriers for Indigenous youth and emerging Indigenous technologists to explore technology or entrepreneurship as a career.

Our giving back strategy generally falls into one of the following categories:

Time-based giving

Work and volunteering hours that Animikii donated to projects for clients and partners. These hours include projects within our areas of expertise as a digital agency as well as projects outside of our discipline. 

Monetary giving

Funds provided by Animikii to charities, organizations, students, and businesses in the forms of financial sponsorships, grants, scholarships, bursaries, and charitable donations.

Supporting Reconciliation

Activities we feel directly support Reconciliation in Canada. These activities are not necessarily volunteering or operational; they are actions we take because when we see an opportunity to use our skills and resources to advance the Reconciliation movement in Canada. 

Community Development

Actions that Animikii undertakes to support the Indigenous technology, entrepreneurial and social innovation communities in Canada.
