Indigenous Corporate Training Inc. (ICT) is an Indigenous company founded in 2002 by Bob Joseph, a Gwawaenuk Nation member, certified Master Trainer and author of the National Best-Selling books, 21 Thing You May Not Know About The Indian Act and Indigenous Relations: Insights, Tips & Suggestions To Make Reconciliation A Reality. www.ictinc.ca
ICT believes that by sharing knowledge and information through our training courses and blog we can make the world a better place for Indigenous and non-Indigenous people (www.ictinc.ca/press#print_articles). We are your guide to Indigenous relations.
ICT has been a national leader in Indigenous awareness, cross cultural/competency, and reconciliation training. We started with one trainer and our foundational course, Working Effectively with Indigenous Peoples® and have grown to 5 Indigenous and subject matter expert trainers from different professional backgrounds.
We provide a safe environment for learners to acquire the knowledge, skills, and attitude required to be effective in their work and day to day interactions with Indigenous Peoples.
ICT’s 20 years of training experience covers a wide variety of sectors including all levels of Federal/Provincial/Municipal governments, resource industry (mining, forestry, oil/gas, aquaculture), Fortune 500 companies, retailers along with many public and private organizations. Check out our testimonials to see the breadth of learners we have been fortunate to work with: www.ictinc.ca/testimonials.
