As an Indigenous trailblazer, Jordin Tootooo understands his responsibility as a role model and has committed his life to reaching Canada’s Indigenous communities through his work with the Team Tootoo Foundation that he founded in honour of his late brother, Terence. Tootoo, who grew up in Nunavut, 200 miles south of the Arctic Circle says “it’s part of Canada that a lot of people struggle with mental health, addiction, and suicide. These issues are a national epidemic. I feel that, at this point in my life, it’s my calling to give back to a lot of these remote communities.” Tootoo brings an uplifting message of creating a culture of inclusivity, telling humorous and authentic stories about his ground-breaking work on and off the ice. Your audience will leave uplifted and inspired, with clear takeaways on bringing NHL-level teamwork skills into any community.
