The Path: Your Journey Through Indigenous Canada is a series of five online modules created by a majority Indigenous-owned company and has been developed with First Nations, Inuit, and Métis advisors and reviewers. This course will introduce you to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis ─ the three Indigenous peoples recognized in the Canadian constitution. Topics include the cultural and historical differences between First Nations, Inuit, and Métis; the evolution of the relationship between Canada and Indigenous people from pre-contact to yesterday’s headlines; stories of social and economic success, reconciliation and resilience; understanding intercultural communication in the workplace, and ways to strengthen relationships with Indigenous peoples.
The online course is completely video-based, available in English or French, and is the only course of its kind to focus in equal depth on all three Indigenous peoples: First Nations, Inuit and Métis. The course is on-demand and takes approximately 4 to 5 hours to complete with a certificate provided upon successful completion.
“It is our responsibility to build relationships with Indigenous peoples based on a recognition of rights, respect, cooperation and partnership. Learning more about Indigenous culture, history and languages is crucial to developing a common understanding and opening the door to respectful relationships” states John Brown, FRAIC, President of the RAIC. “We have an ambitious goal for all members of the RAIC to complete this training. This program is one small step that we can all take together in creating a more culturally safe sector moving forward.”
