Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) offered a roadmap to improved relationships between Indigenous and all Canadians through the 94 Calls to Action. These actions are directed at Canadian governments, corporations, institutions, and citizens, and describe the important role that decision-makers have to play in charting the course for a renewed country in which all citizens have the opportunity to benefit from the prosperity of this land. Yet many organizations and citizens are not sufficiently equipped to respond and take action in meaningful and culturally inclusive ways. This course offers foundational knowledge, real-life examples, and dynamic problem-solving for individuals working to advance Indigenous inclusion within their professional and personal communities.
