The Dinner Party is a major fundraiser to raise awareness and support for two important charities: Sexual Assault and Violence Intervention Services Halton (SAVIS) and Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan-Halton. All profits raised through ticket sales, silent auction and 50/50 draw are solely dedicated to supporting these two groups. Since inception, The Dinner Party has raised approximately $400,000.

Speaker:

We are thrilled to have Roberta Jamieson as our speaker as she is the first First Nation woman in Canada to earn a law degree; the first non-Parliamentarian appointed an ex-officio member of a House of Commons Committee; the first woman Ombudsman of Ontario; and the first woman elected Chief of the Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. An accomplished expert in alternative dispute resolution, Roberta also served as Commissioner of the Indian Commission of Ontario.

Roberta is President and CEO of Indspire, a charity that disburses scholarships and bursaries to support Indigenous students in post-secondary education. There is also a K-12 Indspire Institute that supports educators and communities to improve educational outcomes with culturally grounded curriculum.

Roberta is an Officer of the Order of Canada, has been presented with numerous awards and honourary degrees and is a member of Gender Equality Advisory Council for Canada’s G7 Presidency.
