ICA takes a principled approach to development and partnerships and we strive to uphold our organizational values of accountability, reciprocity and respect in all of our work. Staying true to ICA’s spirit and mandate, we are making a strong effort to build and model a decolonial framework.
Our organization is committed to working with partners and people who share our duty to Indigenous sovereignty and climate justice. We seek partnerships with organizations that:
have a demonstrated commitment upholding Indigenous Rights,
are proven climate leaders,
trust in ICA’s vision and our ability to carry out our work freely,
uplift women in leadership,
are independent from any political parties or interests,
and support real efforts to shift to sustainable and equitable economic models.
ICA does not partner with organizations with an invested interest in extractive industries or climate-destroying initiatives, such as fossil fuel projects. We will consider government and corporate funding on a case-by-case basis, and when required, we look to our National Steering Committee to guide our decision-making and partnerships.
