VICTORIA – The Indigenous Prosperity Centre has announced Christina Clarke as its inaugural Executive Director.
Created in 2021 by South Island Prosperity Partnership (SIPP), the Indigenous Prosperity Centre (IPC) is an Indigenous-led initiative to support Indigenous interests and enhance economic reconciliation on southern Vancouver Island.
Clarke’s wealth of experience includes First Nations governance, policy and law development, community engagement and economic development. She was most recently CEO of the Songhees Development Corporation.
Clarke honours both her NunatuKavut (Inuit-European of Labrador) grandmother and her Irish-born grandfather. “My ancestors walked in two worlds and I do also in my work today.”
In 2022, she was appointed to the University of Victoria’s Board of Governors, where she is an alum with a Bachelor of Arts in Canadian History and Anthropology. Clarke earned a Certificate in First Nations Tax Administration from Thompson Rivers University and the Tulo Centre for Indigenous Economics.
