Andy Pringle, principal and chairman of the event presenting sponsor RPIA, said that even in very challenging economic times, the company recognizes that there are segments of society who have it much harder time.

“Canada’s Indigenous population has been left behind for far too long and we feel we want to do our part to help rectify that wrong by supporting Indspire and the incredible work they do with education,” said Pringle on the Indspire website. “Only through education can the opportunity gap be truly closed and provide meaningful equal opportunity for all Canadians.”
