CALGARY—Dianne Corbiere, a lawyer from M’Chigeeng First Nation, was among 12 people who received a national 2019 Indspire Award on February 22. Representing the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own achievers, the Indspire Awards were created in 1993 with the United Nation’s International Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples.

The awards recognize Indigenous professionals and youth who demonstrate outstanding career achievement. They promote self-esteem and pride for Indigenous communities and provide outstanding role models for Indigenous youth.

A biography written and released at the awards ceremony about Ms. Corbiere reads, “from humble beginnings growing up on M’Chigeeng First Nation, Dianne Corbiere has now received national recognition for her leadership and achievements in Indigenous law and was the first Indigenous person named one of Canada’s Most Influential by Canadian Lawyer Magazine. In 2016, she was elected to serve as a bencher for the Law Society of Ontario (LSO).”
