International
Day of the
World’s
Indigenous
Peoples

Today, and all days, we honour and celebrate Indigenous nations across the globe.

Aritzia acknowledges that we operate on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Nations — xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh).

We’re committed to supporting the empowerment of Indigenous peoples through informed allyship, internship opportunities, artist spotlights and a partnership with The Circle on Philanthropy. This year, we’re featuring Indigenous creatives who share their traditions through a contemporary lens.

Our Commitment

LEARNING JOURNEY We work with Indigenous leaders to ensure our continuous learning on equity seeking Indigenous peoples worldwide.
THE CIRCLE ON PHILANTHROPY We’ve partnered with The Circle on Philanthropy — an organization that works to ethically steward resources from the philanthropic sector to Indigenous communities. This partnership connects Aritzia with a large network of Indigenous organizations helping create systemic change and increase equity, justice and sovereignty for Indigenous peoples.
INTERNSHIPS We have dedicated spots in our annual internship program for newly graduated Indigenous students. The program provides coaching and mentorship from world-class leaders to provide meaningful business experience and support growth potential.
