JSGS Public Workshop: The Relationship between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous People

University of Saskatchewan

Facilitated by Ron Crowe, Executive-in-Residence, JSGS, and Cassandra Wajuntah, Associate Director, Indigenous Peoples' Health Research Centre (IPHRC)

This one-day public workshop will provide an overview of the historical events and policies that have shaped the current relationship between Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people in Canada. The workshop will highlight how this historical context plays a role in the Calls to Action highlighted by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). The workshop will also examine current Indigenous policy and review engagement strategies and relationship-building tools that public servants can use with Indigenous communities.

By the end of this workshop, participants will:

  1. Understand how historical events, policies and current legislation have shaped the current social, health, and education inequalities for many Indigenous people;
  2. Be familiar with relationship-building tools and engagement strategies; and,
  3. Have the background knowledge necessary to initiate the implementation of selected TRC Calls to Action.

Workshop Fees:  $350.00 + GST

Registration closes on April 24.
