Owner and Chief Executive Officer of FireSpirit Inc., a growing Manitoba
Indigenous Human Resources Company. FireSpirit provides specialized employment
services for a broad spectrum of clients in Winnipeg and the Northwestern
Region of Manitoba. Lawrence strives to deliver a value-based service that
celebrates Indigenous knowledge, while recognizing the importance of
participating in a modern, globalized economy.
In collaboration with a broad
base of partners he works to combine both modern concepts and indigenous
frameworks to create unique tools within FireSpirit. These tools include Holistic
Job Coaching Models, Indigenous/Experiential Essential Skills Curriculums,

ways to improve self sufficiency for all Canadians. This pursuit will
ultimately lead to FireSpirit evolving from an employee driven company, to a
community driven by fellow entrepreneurs.
