This full day course introduces participants to key concepts including the history and impacts of Colonization and allyship. This training gives an overview of the displacement of Indigenous Peoples through Residential Schools and the colonial practices that we see today to work towards recognizing one’s privilege and finding ways to use it to uplift Indigenous Sovereignty. Participants discuss frameworks such as cultural intelligence and the steps they can take to be authentic allies. Self-reflective learning, group discussions, and experiential learning are an integral part of the training to support individuals and organizations in creating decolonial practices.

Cultural Perspectives Training helps 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 and the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

To accommodate the diverse 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-guided online resources, research and off-site action-taking.
