IHMC believes that through education and sharing positive stories, all Canadians can grow and connect in the best way possible. In 2007, IHMC was graciously proclaimed by the honourable and departed, Mauril Belanger, MP, for Ottawa-Vanier. IHMC has since been proclaimed in the cities and provinces across the country."
