Jim Windigo, a respected Ojibway Elder gave us our name. Miziwe Biik is like a body of water where a ripple effect has been created; it is the ability to reach out and make positive change in the lives of the Aboriginal peoples across the Greater Toronto Area.
Our mission is to provide services to the Aboriginal* peoples in the Greater Toronto Area; to work with employers to secure employment opportunities; to deliver federal and provincial programs; and, promote Aboriginal* entrepreneurship and the development of our economies. We will work with individuals, other agencies and groups to provide these services and achieve our mission.
