Sandi Boucher


Bringing Canada together – one conversation, one relationship, one speech at a time.


Sandi Boucher is an internationally recognized and much-loved speaker, thought leader, television host, seminar facilitator and best-selling author who has dedicated most of her life to Indigenous inclusion, empowerment, and engagement and in the last decade, to Canadian reconciliation.

Sandi is not about blame, shame, or guilt for she truly feels these are roadblocks to reconciliation.  Having said that, she knows reconciliation is not “one piece of legislation” nor is there a pan-Canadian solution.  There are steps we must take and Sandi is all too happy to lead the charge!

Through the use of metaphor and the art of story-telling, Sandi brings a much needed “Indigenous lens” to the Canadian conversation.  Sandi Boucher is a proud member of Seine River First Nation in northern Ontario, Canada but Sandi has made Thunder Bay, Ontario her home for more than 25 years, a city nationally recognized for its anti-Indigenous racism.  Yet she was named both the Thunder Bay Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year and the Nishnawbe Aski Development Fund Business Woman of the Year in 2016, proving that she knows how to build bridges even in the most challenging of situations.

Known for her passionate and empowering speaking style that speaks “to hearts, not minds”, Sandi’s audiences include elementary, secondary, and post-secondary schools; colleges and universities; First Nation communities and agencies; mainstream municipalities and businesses, along with countless national, international, and regional conferences.

How it all began

Sandi started her work as a storyteller and inspirational speaker in 2009, after 25 years in the Employment and Training industry.

Thanks to her dedication to the cause, Sandi has travelled across Canada and as far off as Finland, sharing her message of empowerment for Indigenous peoples and respectful cross-cultural relations with all the nations of this great continent.

But her passion will always be her writing. Sandi’s first book, “Honorary Indian” which tells of her Mother’s teachings through Sandi’s life story, was released in 2010, reaching Best Seller status in 2013.

“Her Mother’s Daughter” followed in 2013, reaching Best Seller status in 2015.  In 2018, she released “The PATH”, a book and action plan designed to effectively guide all Canadians to and through reconciliation.
