Cultural Perspectives Training
Indigenous Perspectives Society (IPS) offers Cultural Perspectives Training (CPT) to help governments, organizations, businesses and individuals deepen their understanding and develop actionable ideas to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada’s Calls to Action.
To accommodate the learning needs of adults and professionals, Cultural Perspectives Training is offered through a blended learning model that balances in-class sharing, learning, and collaboration with self-guiding online resources, research and off-site action-taking.
Cultural Perspectives Training addresses:
- The legacy of colonization including inter-generational trauma, privilege and racism, and what it means to an individual or organization wanting to build successful relationships with Indigenous people and communities
- How to create a Call to Action response plan that turns ideas in to meaningful action
Upon completion, the outcomes that participants can anticipate are:
- Applying anti-oppressive ideologies and methods into work and daily life
- Engaging in ongoing reflection on how privilege and stereotypes impact work and relationships
- Strengthening collaborative working relationships with Indigenous people and communities

“For me, the Cultural Perspectives Training program was a remarkable and transformative experience. The depth and breadth of the material covered, and the processes Kelly and Laurie put in place to process the issues raised, created a unique balance of group safety and personal exposure. Challenging topics were addressed with candor and honesty. Tears, laughter and personal stories were all part of the day. The follow-up on-line learning built on the one-day workshop experience and added both content and new ways of understanding and walking with a new awareness of Indigenous culture. Beyond the learning and the experiences associated with the Cultural Perspectives Training program, I gained the confidence to act. I am reaching out to Indigenous Peoples and incorporating the knowledge and lessons from the program into my life and my work.” – Darryl Harris, Training Sergeant, Saanich Police
