I Am Compelled (IAC) began with a simple question in 2010. Founder, Director and Metis Citizen, Crystal Lavallee, was provoked to answer, "Why is Canada such a prosperous nation?"
In her search for that answer, she was pointed all the way back to Canada's foundations, specifically, to the men and women who sacrificed much for the freedoms we enjoy today. From there, Crystal felt a responsibility to educate and challenge the next generation to do their part.
That moment gave Crystal a vision and a message to bring to life the stories of bravery, selflessness and courage of Canadians throughout history. In that, she grew a passion to inspire new generation leaders towards leading a life of good deeds and responsible citizenship.
To date, our assemblies have been viewed by audiences of 10,000+ in all school boards across Manitoba, Alberta and Ontario. We are a diverse team with a diverse assembly and we are growing and expanding year by year.
