INDIGENOUS EDUCATION AND TRAINING

Our comprehensive in-person and/or online education programs help people and organizations better understand, support and partner with Indigenous people, businesses and communities. Indigenous education is a critical first step towards organizations growing their Indigenous business-related revenues, increasing and diversifying their talent pool, improving their supply chains, managing and mitigating intercultural risk, and meeting their Truth & Reconciliation-informed corporate social responsibility goals.


Our adaptable learning modules - which were designed and developed using wise practices and employing the ADDIE model - include:

  • history (including pre-contact, contact, Indigenous-Crown relations, treaties, the Indian Act and residential schools)
  • understanding bias, implicit bias, racism and stereotypes
  • current issues and context (including treaty rights, land claims, self-government and truth and reconciliation)
  • creating safe organizations (including inclusive policy design and development, intercultural communication, and allyship)
  • community consultation and engagement


All of our training programs also include sector-specific content for your organization.


We often recommend hybrid approaches to learning (online and in-person), which maximizes learning and broad participation.


All of our programming is offered in both French and English by our team of trained facilitators.
