About Us

Kanata Trade Co. is in the process of being transferred to Indigenous (Métis) owner, Ernie Ouimet.  Ernie was born in Manitoba and is from the Lake Winnipegosis community.

The mission and purpose of the business will continue – to support Indigenous students attending universities and colleges.  We donate some of our proceeds to Indspire charity and also to other Indigenous related initiatives.

Indspire is an Indigenous national charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people for the long-term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities, and Canada.

Our supplier also pays royalties to the artists for the use of their artwork on the products we sell.

Please purchase items with Indigenous artwork from our selection and share this site with your colleagues, friends and families so that we can together support Indigenous students together.
