FUTURE ANCESTORS SERVICES INC.
WE SUPPORT CLIENTS AND COMMUNITY IN ADVANCING SYSTEMIC BARRIER REMOVAL AND CLIMATE JUSTICE.
We're an intergenerational team of Black, Indigenous, racialized, Queer, disabled, and Francophone professionals and advisors. Through this team we provide speaking, training, research and consulting services, and influencer and interview services to diverse clients.
The work we do with our clients and community partners explicitly work towards advancing climate justice, decolonization, and anti-racism.
We specialize in accessible, anti-ageist, anti-racist, bilingual, and transformational service delivery. And because our relationship to community is our leading relationship, we don't accept contracts that we determine go against our commitments and responsibilities.

OUR CREATION STORY
FUTURE ANCESTORS SERVICES WAS PATIENTLY AND COLLECTIVELY CREATED.
February - March 2020
Chúk and Sam agree to join Future Ancestors Services, and immediately begin shaping the direction and structure of the organization. The Global COVID-19 Pandemic touches Canada.
This year we're focused on building our administrative support; shaping organizational direction with decolonial and Indigenous teachings; re-launching our direct community supports such as live events and our grant fund; and building our internal relationships. Chúk has transitioned out of the organization, and Larissa and Sam will continue to hold space for team members to take on more leadership roles within Future Ancestors Services and community.
OUR APPROACH TO SERVICES
WE'RE QUITE INTENTIONAL ABOUT HOW WE 'DO BUSINESS'.
When your accountability lies with community, you are afforded a freedom to assert a position grounded in what is best for people, kin, and Earth.
We understand that our client-facing services are one way that we can serve community and Earth: by supporting our clients through our services, we are improving their capacity to create better spaces and work outputs that honour people, kin, and environment in the past, present, and future. This is one way we serve community.
Like many of the ways we operate, we trusted in ourselves to formulate a new way of doing business that we haven’t necessarily seen or experienced before. You can read more about what these approaches look like in practice through service delivery on the Our Services page.
