On March 4, 2022 House of Wolf became an Arctic Inspiration Prize Laureate!
We are immensely grateful and extremely proud to have been awarded $500,000 to launch the Indigenous Community Safety Partnership Program. Together with many partners we will support the restoration of safety in our communities, and support each other in building resilience to future crises and emergencies.
We would like to thank the Arctic Inspiration Prize Selection Committee, the Rideau Hall Foundation, and so many incredible Northerners who contribute to the AIP every year, and give life to so many phenomenal projects. House of Wolf would like to recognize the support of our many partners, mentors and champions.

WHO ARE YOU?
An Indigenous Community that recognizes one or any number of safety concerns for your community, no matter the degree of severity, and want to see change.
WHAT ARE YOUR NEEDS?
To see a decrease in substance abuse, crime and violence in your community and to know you live in a community where you and your neighbours feel safe and are always heard when safety is threatened in any way.
HOW DO YOU TAKE THE FIRST STEP?
You already have. If you are here, you and your community have acknowledged a desire to see positive change and the need for assistance in order to see that change.
We agree fundamentally that “Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of person” (Article 3 - Universal Declaration of Human Rights ) and have a mutual interest in the betterment of your and all communities.
House of Wolf & Associates is excited to hear from you to start a collaboration.
