Impact

Social Impact Statement

Our impact focuses on creating equitable outcomes for Indigenous Peoples, and our tool of choice is technology. We achieve this impact every day through our work in supporting the Indigenous Innovation and Reconciliation movements with our skills and resources. By being an example of an Indigenous-focused tech company, we hope to inspire the next generation of Indigenous youth to choose technology and entrepreneurship as a career path. We believe that investing in technology is the path forward for economic justice, self-sufficiency, and equitable outcomes for Indigenous Peoples and advocate that economic development initiatives transition away from resource extraction to knowledge-based economies.

Giving Back

Here at Animikii, we attribute our business success directly with giving back to our communities. 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.

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