Creative Foundation Inc. (CFI) is a not-for-profit community-based organization. The organization successfully launched its first workshop and interactive seminar on the 18th of November, 1999 at the Red River College. The College's Campus Diversity Program Committee led by Barabara Dixon co-sponsored the event with the wonderful support of Mr. Larry Partap, Creative Arts of the College. With CFI, the starting infrastructure and foundation of every child's creativity is vital.  The organization which is the brainchild of innovative Canadian citizen, Yisa Akinbolaji first started in 1994 while he was still in Lagos, before relocating to Canada in 1997. The organization was incorporated in Manitoba in 1999.

The board of the CFI Canada have had the privilege of hearing from many professionals that have experienced the organization's activities in their formative years, and they have assured the board that a lifelong impact is ongoing in their professional and personal lives. Some of the youth have gone on to be Surgeons, Educators, Technologists, Scientists, Artists and CEOs who are now established in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom and globally. They have cited the benefits of creative thinking and the value of networking that they learned through the Creative Foundation as fundamemtal in their lives. This is an encouraging indication that every good seed generously sown has the potential of making the world a better, peaceful and fruitful place.

The Creative Foundation is non religious and non political. It is designed to expose youth to the power of creativity, empower them to express themselves and learn to collabotate with others. It is also designed to expose participants to the unique cultures of other people. The boards of CFI encourage every successful adult to realize that it is rewarding to contribute to the greatness of the youth just as certain individuals have contributed to the success they now enjoy, recognizing that the best future is in the hands of today's children.

The activities of the Creative Foundation include education in Human Rights, Visual Art, Performing Art, Literary Art, Theatre Art, Technology, Storytelling and Creative Thinking. All these areas and much more are facilited by individuals of great professional experiences, academic suitability or creative achievements.
