Indigenous Learning Series: Cultural Protocols: A Matter of Respect

A solid understanding and acknowledgment of cultural protocols is vital to establishing meaningful and lasting working relationships with Indigenous communities and groups—relationships based on mutual respect and trust as a matter of practice.

As a public servant, you may be asked to work with Indigenous communities, groups or associations for a wide variety of reasons, including, but not limited to the following:

  • fulfilling the Duty to Consult
  • soliciting advice and guidance
  • learning from Elders and other members of the community
  • discussing a project
  • supporting the delivery of services

Join us to learn about these important topics and bring any colleagues who would benefit from this conversation. Registration is now open.
