About Our Workshops
The Urban Aboriginal Strategy offers cross-cultural learning workshops as part of its mission to support social, economic, and cultural inclusion through the provision of accessible Indigenous learning and educational opportunities for the community. Community organizations can request a customized, full-day workshop where a range of facilitators share Anishinabek teachings and perspectives on contemporary topics of interest to that organization. These workshops aim to provide an intimate and non-judgmental learning environment for all participants to learn about Indigenous culture in order to better equip organizations to develop strong, respectful, and positive relationships with Indigenous peoples in our community.
