Cultural Awareness Trainers

Cultural awareness training is a PAR program requirement for committed-level companies. It allows companies to build a framework over a three-phased process within the three-year timeline to integrate a reset in their organizational thinking and approach to working with and impacting in First Nation, Métis and Inuit communities.

Cultural awareness trainers (CAT) are required to be a Certified Aboriginal Business (CAB) trained in the PAR framework and criteria to understand and support the intent of any PAR certified organization.

Trainers offer various types of instruction but are required to deliver on the themes of history, protocol, etiquette and approach.

CCAB would like to acknowledge the following Certified Aboriginal Businesses that provide cultural awareness training to organizations that have made a commitment to the PAR program.
