Current and Past Recipients

Spirit Bear is bear-y proud to announce the winners of the 2022 Spirit Bear Award. The Spirit Bear Award recognizes groups of young people who demonstrate a commitment to reconciliation and the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action.

This year, we were inspired by the impacts you are making to end discrimination against First Nations children, youth, and families and continued work towards reconciliation. We look forward to witnessing your ongoing action for fairness, equity, and love!
