Allyship in an Aboriginal Context
If you have ever subscribed to the idea that Canada should be an equitable, inclusive, or anticolonial society, then we share a common goal. Allyship just means that we act in a way that demonstrates these values.

Come and learn about strategies that are specific to Aboriginal allyship and how to successfully promote inclusion, safety, and social justice.

Introduction to Residential Schools
What is a residential school? What was the purpose of these schools? What are the impacts it has on Aboriginal communities today? How many people attended? If you would like the answers to any of these questions, contact us to request a presentation.
