Participates in 1 Session
  Tim Fox is a proud member of the Blackfoot confederacy from the Blood (Kainai) reserve located two hours south of Calgary. Tim is the Director of Indigenous Relations with the Calgary Foundation where he hopes to incorporating work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission both internally and in the broader community.

“Indigenous culture is rooted in oral tradition. I can't help but notice the parallels in this paradigm to the work of the Calgary Foundation through stories of impact, giving nature and work of the heart. If I were to a sum up this parallel in one word, I would simply use, community. That being said, I am excited to share some insights and set the context behind the need for Indigenous specific support within the infrastructure of the Foundation and service delivery in general. Be it through increased education/awareness internally, capacity building for the charities we support, strategic direction or seeds of information that assist us in our work with various Indigenous community groups and projects we are a part of.”

Tim shares in the values of the Calgary Foundation and in the belief that there are ways this work can live and thrive for the next 150 years.
