Event description

Description

After a sold-out first edition, the Public Policy Forum (PPF) is once again offering this professional development opportunity exclusively for public service executives to explore in-depth how reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples can be put into practice.

The federal government is committed to a renewed nation-to-nation, government-to-government and Inuit-Crown relationship with Indigenous peoples. PPF’s newest learning series features four learning modules that will better equip officials to take concrete steps in policy development towards renewing this important relationship, and to do so in an inclusive way. The seminar series represents a further step towards implementation of Truth and Reconciliation Commission Call to Action #57.

Objectives of the Seminar Series

  • Basics: Increase understanding of the history of the relationship with Indigenous peoples, Indigenous peoples’ perspectives, what reconciliation means, the past and present policy environment, as well as greater cultural competence and confidence.

  • Practical: Increase understanding about how officials can take reconciliation forward in their own role and in their department, and how officials can incorporate it into their everyday policy-making.

  • Extension: Take their knowledge back to their department and share it with colleagues.

  • Leadership: Create a core group of ‘champions’ for practicing reconciliation.

  • Collaborative: Build networks with other officials who are working through similar issues.

  • Cross-cutting: Thought-provoking program with new, innovative and credible ideas on how to move forward with reconciliation.

The Program

The sessions are facilitated by a team of experienced moderators and involve presentations by leading experts including Indigenous leaders, discussion, critical thinking and interactive learning. The seminar series will focus on considering concrete policy solutions to some of the topical and important issues associated with the Indigenous agenda. The dates of the sessions will be published shortly.

  • Grand Chief Wilton Littlechild
