One day workshop “Reconciliation Begins With me” is Intended for all public servants who want to increase their knowledge about Indigenous Peoples and issues and who want to understand how they can contribute personally and professionally to renewing relationships. In a supportive setting, you will be introduced to the rich diversity of First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures and communities in your region and across Canada;
- gain essential knowledge regarding the history of Indigenous–settler relationships and the human, social and economic effects of past government policies and practices;
- learn about key events, decisions and actions that are relevant to government responsibilities towards Indigenous Peoples and that set the stage for future relationships; and
- gain personal and professional insight into how you can contribute to positive change.
This workshop is the result of collaboration between the Canada School of Public Service and the Institute of Public Administration of Canada in response to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Call to Action #57
