In order to engage effectively with Indigenous peoples, we need to build our knowledge of Indigenous history, culture, and ways of being. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

GOALS OF THE INITIATIVE:

• To provide resources that build knowledge and skills in order for Indigenous and non-Indigenous individuals and organizations to work effectively together.
• To facilitate a broader understanding of the root causes of inequities affecting Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

DELIVERABLES :

• An online resource of select Indigenous cultural competency training available in Canada.

COMING SOON:

• Select examples of Cultural Competency Training and Other Resources to support individuals and organizations to better understand Indigenous history and cultures and how to work in partnership with Indigenous peoples.
