Our Indigenous Cultural Competency Training sessions are thought-provoking and interactive.

Participants learn skills, knowledge, attitudes and values to foster meaningful relationships with Indigenous communities.

They gain new insights into Canada’s history and learn to how to be better allies today.

We currently offer two full-day sessions: Cycle 1 and Cycle 2

Join Us on April 24

for ICCT Cycle 1:

Cycle 1 focuses on the early relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, builds awareness of intergenerational trauma, and introduces the OFIFC’s relationship framework.

Learning can then focus on answering, “What are my responsibilities?”

This journey strengthens cultural awareness, informs relationship building between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, and enhances organizational programs and policies.

Learning Outcomes:
·         Examine how historical events have impacted relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Canadians
·         Begin to understand policies and legislation that have impacted Indigenous communities
·         Build a framework that enhances relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples
·        Share a culture-based framework for improving cultural competence at home, at work and in communities
