The Mastercard Foundation seeks a world where everyone has the opportunity to learn and prosper.
The Foundation’s lead program in Canada is EleV. EleV recognizes that Indigenous youth are the youngest, fastest growing population in the country and the leaders and agents of change for their communities and the country as a whole.
The EleV Roadmap to 2030 confirms the program’s Vision, Goals, Strategic Outcomes and the way we will work with Indigenous youth and communities to move forward.

Young People Know is a five-part podcast series featuring the voices and experiences of young Indigenous leaders, co-created and co-produced by the Mastercard Foundation EleV Program and Good Influence Films. Learn more.
Co-created with and confirmed by Indigenous youth and communities, EleV’s Vision is for Indigenous young people to be living Mino Bimaadiziwin – “a good life”, in the Anishinaabe language.

Built on co-creation, listening, learning, respect, reciprocity, and commitment, EleV supports Indigenous-led solutions to transform systems of education and employment to better serve and meet the needs of Indigenous youth.
EleV works with Partners in every region of Canada. Our partners are Indigenous-led or are working in deep partnership with Indigenous youth, communities or organizations.
At the EleV Program, we seek to uplift and amplify the voices of Indigenous young people as agents of change in their communities and in Canada as a whole. The visions and aspirations of Indigenous youth are central to the EleV Program.
