Residential schools were agents of assimilation and cultural genocide for First Nations, Métis and Inuit children across Canada. Today, Alberta schools are working towards reconciliation by cultivating positive and respectful relationships among both Indigenous and Non-Indigenous students.

This workshop will examine the history, impacts, and legacy of residential schools including the effects of intergenerational trauma associated with the very real in today’s society. Tools, resources and strategies that contribute to the development of mutually respectful relations between Indigenous and non Indigenous Canadians will be explored. Participants will leave honouring the TRC’s Calls to Action and make a professional and personal commitment to action.
