BHP, the world’s largest mining company, has announced a three-year partnership with Indspire, a national Indigenous registered charity in Canada. The partnership involves a C$2.6 million investment ($1.9 million) to support Indigenous students pursuing post-secondary education and training.

This funding will enable Indspire to expand its Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships, and Awards program, which provides post-secondary bursaries to hundreds of students each year.

The initiative will also provide multi-year travel grants for two events aimed at Indigenous students and educators in Canada: the Soaring Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering and the National Gathering for Indigenous Education.

This partnership aligns with BHP’s Indigenous Peoples Policy and Social Value Framework, as well as the company’s goal to have 20% Indigenous representation in its operational workforce in Canada by 2026, when the Jansen potash project in Saskatchewan begins production.

β€œBHP’s expanded commitment to Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures bursaries and scholarships program is a significant step towards empowering First Nations, Inuit, and MΓ©tis students across the country to achieve their educational goals,” said Indspire CEO Mike DeGagnΓ©.

Caroline Cox, BHP’s Chief Legal, Governance, and External Affairs Officer, added, β€œThe work Indspire is doing to break down barriers and create new opportunities for Indigenous students in Canada is crucial to a more inclusive, equitable, and successful future for all.”

The next phase of the program will be launched in November and will continue until 2025.
