Workshops on Canada’s History & the Municipal Role in Reconciliation – Alberta Municipalities and the Rural Municipalities of Alberta

Press Release

Alberta Municipalities and the Rural Municipalities of Alberta are co-hosting eight more virtual workshops that will explore how past government policies have defined today’s relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Workshops will provide municipal leaders with a deeper understanding of:

  • Canada’s history of government policies and their effects on First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.
  • The lessons learned from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and the 94 Calls to Action.
  • Indigenous intersectionality and guidance on terminology.
  • Common myths and how unconscious bias continues to contribute to misconceptions, prejudices, and stereotyping of Indigenous peoples.
  • Practical steps municipal governments can take to advance reconciliation and create inclusive workspaces.

This workshop is open to municipal elected officials and municipal staff, and costs $25 plus GST for each participant. The workshop is being offered on the following dates:

  • January 24, 2022 — 1:30 to 4 p.m.
  • January 31, 2022 — 1:30 to 4 p.m.

  • March 25, 2022 — 1:30 to 4 p.m.
  • March 29, 2022 — 1:30 to 4 p.m.
