Indigenous Cultural Competency Training

Indigenous Cultural Competency Training

As part of the Canada 150 celebrations focused on the Year of Truth and Reconciliation, the Museums of Mississauga is concentrating on continuing to build strong and respectful partnerships with the Indigenous community.

To help us achieve this goal and help Mississauga residents understand both the historical and contemporary issues facing the Indigenous community, the Museums of Mississauga is hosting a half-day session on Indigenous Cultural Competency. This training session will be led by Michael Etherington, Manager of Culture Programs, Native Canadian Centre Toronto. In the session, Michael will explain how we can create a platform for promoting cultural competency for Indigenous relations. The content of the session will include an overview of terminology and definitions, statistics and demographical information, historical events and their impacts on cultural identity and contemporary issues facing Indigenous people.

Kris Noakes, President, Peel Aboriginal Network will be delivering an introduction to the exercise.

The Native Canadian Centre Toronto is Toronto's oldest Indigenous community organization and one of the original Friendship Centres in Canada. It provides social, recreational, cultural and spiritual services for the Indigenous community and visitors alike.
