This report summarizes case study research based on three Indigenous Non-governmental Organisations (INGOs) in Canada having a transformative impact in their communities—Qqs Projects Society, Storytellers’ Foundation, and Ilisaqsivik Society. They are unique organizations that reflect distinct places, people, cultures, histories, and socioeconomic contexts.
