In order to provide the following programs to all citizens, IRK will raise capitol through our government services and business profits, as well as through various corporate sponsorships, private donations, as well as government of Canada partnerships.

Most of the services are free, but like the Government of Canada and other organizations, we have a fee schedule for various services and 100% of all profits made go to fund the programs that are free.

Our Government is committed in promoting the identity and culture of all Indigenous Peoples within Kanata. We recognize all Peoples who identify as First Nation, Metis, Inuit, Acadian, and/or mixed blood.
Our goal is to tell their stories, share their histories, and celebrate all their commonalities, differences, and examine their achievements which helped to establish Kanata to become the Canada we know today.
In order to assist our Citizens in documenting their Indigenous ancestry, we have Genealogists who have extensive databases of census, birth, marriage, death, and other statistical records that can provide the proof necessary to acquire government grants, educational funding, etc. Upon completion of the search, you will be provided with primary documents, as well as a certified stamp of genealogical proof of Indigenous ancestry if the necessary evidence can be obtained.
