RAVEN - Respecting Aboriginal Values and Environmental Needs


What is at stake for Indigenous Peoples is at stake for all of us —
the assurance that we will always have water to drink, a sustainable food source, and healthy ecosystems so all life can flourish.

Jess Housty, Heiltsuk Nation councillor on the strength of her Nation’s partnership with RAVEN

RAVEN is the only non-profit charitable organization in Canada that uses the power of the crowd to fund access to justice for Indigenous Peoples. We are unique, and we are having a direct impact  through our strategic + focussed campaigns. 

Defeating the odds and winning time and again in court, we’ve proven that the game-changing legal challenges that RAVEN funds can secure Indigenous rights and protect the environment.

Our diverse team are passionate, dedicated and committed to social change. This is a lean, efficient and hard-working organization that will stretch itself to achieve our goals: realizing a vision of a country that embraces the values of the First Nations.
