Indspire requests repayment of funds from Nadya and Amira Gill


Canadian Indigenous registered charity Indspire has released a follow-up statement on Nadya and Amira Gill, who were investigated for fraud after claiming Inuit identity in order to apply for awards and scholarships that were reserved for Indigenous students. Among these awards, the sisters received Building Brighter Futures funding from Indspire to support their education at Queen’s University. The sisters used their Nunavut Tunngavik Inc (NTI) enrolment as proof of their Indigenous identity to receive Indspire funding, but have since been removed from the NTI enrolment list after their identities were questioned. Indspire has requested that the sisters return these funds.
