Indigenous Partners

A foundational element of Hamilton’s Bid for the 2030 Commonwealth Games is to establish a meaningful partnership with Indigenous Peoples to ensure that Indigenous voices and perspectives are represented and adopted at every stage of the planning, implementation and execution of the Commonwealth Games.

This partnership will also ensure that the 2030 Games will showcase and celebrate First Nations, Metis and Inuit cultures, knowledge and history, and will be based on, and guided by, the core values of respect, reciprocity, responsibility, relationships, accountability, authenticity, transparency and sharing.

An Indigenous Partnership Collective, composed of representatives from the local Indigenous communities and organizations, will be formed to act as the touchpoint for collaboration between the Indigenous Peoples, the Hamilton 2030 Bid Committee, the Commonwealth Games Federation, Commonwealth Sports Canada, and other interested parties.
