Calgary Indigenous Sharing Network- Native Counselling Services of AB

Supporting Indigenous Sharing Network (SISN) is community driven by the community, for the community to strengthen the voice of Indigenous peoples and the relationships with key stakeholders for within two coalition groups, the Lethbridge (LISN) and Calgary Indigenous Sharing Networks (CISN).

Urban Programming for Indigenous Peoples (UPIP) Coalition Community Initiative is funding both Lethbridge and Calgary cities wanting to engage with urban Indigenous communities. UPIP seeks their input to develop, to establish and maintain Indigenous coalitions. These coalitions will share information, discuss current emerging issues, identify local priorities and needs, continue with community planning and promote collaboration at a local level. The Community Engagement & Partnership program(s) lead by Native Counselling Services of Alberta (NCSA) and funded through UPIP is supporting this work.

The SISN has established a multi-stakeholder network in both Lethbridge and Calgary. Community, organizations, agencies, et al… come together on a regular basis for information sharing, partnership building, to identify local priorities and emerging issues, community planning and provide support for Indigenous programs and organizations serving the urban Indigenous population.

Staying connected in an urban setting is identified as a barrier; not receiving the information of what is available, or going on in our community limits access. Often times, Indigenous peoples get their information through word of mouth or from a poster on the wall of the agency. In keeping with traditional knowledge, communication was the foundation to the village, council fires, talking circles and sharing circles. The SISN website will inform Indigenous communities of any upcoming events/functions.
