Rogers Sports & Media will also provide $5 million over 5 years in advertising and creative services to charities that support all equity-deserving communities. For the pilot and inaugural year of this national initiative, we teamed up with Indspire, an organization that partners with Indigenous, private, and public stakeholders to educate, connect, and invest in First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people to achieve their highest potential.

“At Rogers Sports & Media, we recognize what makes us unique – and that’s our national media megaphone. All IN is about amplifying the voices, opinions and thoughts of equity-deserving groups that have not always been heard with equal measure. Let’s work together to build an inclusive Canada.”
