Indigenous Innovator & Business Executive Wanda Brascoupé Joins Maple Leaf Strategies

Ottawa, Ontario  – Maple Leaf Strategies is pleased to announce Indigenous innovator and experienced business executive Wanda Brascoupé has joined Maple Leaf Strategies as a Strategic Advisor.  Throughout her career, Wanda has removed obstacles to create new opportunities in business and philanthropy.

Wanda is Bear Clan, Kanien’keha, Skarù rę’, Anishinabe, and member of Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg. Her career in the for and non-profit sectors has focused on working alongside partners committed to the path toward long-term, meaningful relationships with Indigenous peoples by guiding and shaping change through tangible, actionable approaches.

In 1999, she began a consulting firm specializing in high tech outsourcing that successfully sustained client relationships for over 20 years. During this time, she started her philanthropy path as a volunteer, board member, and national leadership positions in the new arena of Indigenous philanthropy in Canada. She has been a part of reshaping relationships through actionable pathways for private and public foundations to act on the Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

As a founding board member of Reconciliation Canada to her current leadership with the Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund (IPRF), Wanda is committed to actioning real relationships with Indigenous peoples.

As COVID began, she and a small team created The Indigenous Peoples Resilience Fund. The first-ever Indigenous-led fund recognizes that innovative actions regularly actioned in Indigenous communities often go unsupported. IPRF responds to critical community needs while taking a long-term view on supporting community resilience from coast to coast to coast.

“Wanda brings both a fresh perspective and track record of success to the Maple Leaf Strategies team of experts,” said Phil von Finckenstein, Partner and Co-Founder of Maple Leaf Strategies. “Wanda’s insight and experience will be a unique addition to our suite of services.”
