NVision has developed three courses in Indigenous cultural competency.
The Path: Your Journey Through Indigenous Canada meets the TRC’s Calls to Action for Canadians to learn about “the history and legacy of residential schools, the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal rights, Indigenous law, and Aboriginal– Crown relations.”
The course is available online (5 modules), in-person (full-day) or by virtual classroom on Adobe Connect (full-day spread across four sessions).
If your company would like to view the online modules, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ask for free, limited access to The Path (indicate you are registered in the PAR program).
The Path: Indigenous Intercultural Intelligence meets the TRC’s Calls to Action for Canadians to receive “skills-based training in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism.” This course provides the tools and techniques to help participants understand their own cultural and racial attitudes and build inter-cultural capacity, humility and intelligence.
This course is offered in-person (full-day) and by virtual classroom on Adobe Connect (full-day divided into four sessions).
The Path: Indigenous Engagement is a transformative, skills-based experience that provides opportunities to learn about the importance (and often legal requirements) of Indigenous engagement and consultation, clarifying terms such as co-manage, co-develop, engage, consult, Indigenous Knowledge Systems, OCAP and FPIC. Learners will gain an understanding of engagement practices and how to conduct meaningful engagement with Indigenous communities, organizations and/or governments. If you are a researcher, scientist, government representative, or resource company representative and your goal is to prepare for Indigenous engagement, this is the course for you.
