Course Code : 5APTR
This course is for all workers, including non-Indigenous activists, to learn the history of Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island (North America) facilitated by Indigenous labour activists. Its purpose is to build meaningful, long-term relationships among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples inside and outside of our workplaces, with the aim of acknowledging labour’s commitment to Truth and Reconciliation. This course supports the decolonization of Indigenous peoples and the increase of Indigenous peoples’ representation in our workplaces and in our unions. Participants do not need any previous experience and are encouraged to bring open minds and hearts. Participants are requested to bring a copy of their collective agreement.
