Allyship & Anti-racism

Being an ally is not a static identity, it is not a badge of honor, it is a sign of privilege. Allyship is also not declared but based on the context in which you ACT. This course unpacks the similarities and differences for being an ally to Indigenous peoples in relationship to other ally contexts.

Decolonizing Education

Canadian education systems are inherently colonial systems. In a time of Truth and Reconciliation, Decolonization, and Indigenization, many academic institutions are aiming to decolonize or reconcile their organizations. Establishing Indigenous Cultural Safety within the institution will set a strong foundation for future advancement of decolonization and reconciliation in higher education. In this session, we will examine the context for colonialism in higher education, how to address it, and embed Indigenous Cultural Safety in pedagogy, practice, and policy.

Decolonizing Substance Use & Indigenous Harm Reduction

This course will explore the link between colonialism and Indigenous health and social inequities with a focus on the toxic drug crisis and its impact on Indigenous communities today. Participants will discuss the origins of prohibition in Canada, strategies to address stigmas associated with substance use, examine culturally safer language, and Indigenous perspectives on harm reduction.

Indigenous Trauma & Equity Informed Practice

This session aims at expanding our social perceptions on the missing context not usually covered in other ‘trauma-informed’ workshops. This session will centre Indigenous perspectives on the change needed and required to go beyond being “informed” and lead towards culturally safer and equity-oriented organizations and services.

Transformative Territory Acknowledgements

This session engages participants in the origins of Territory Acknowledgements in Canada today. Why are we asked to do territory acknowledgements? When should I do them? Who should do them? These are just a few questions answered in this engaging workshop.
