Indigenous Relationship and Cultural Awareness Courses
We have designed a series of online courses to help individuals working with First Nations, Inuit, Métis and urban Indigenous people. The courses support a call to action made in the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada report.
These 13 courses will provide you with knowledge about the history and culture of First Nations, Inuit, Métis and urban Indigenous people and communities. It is our hope that these courses will help you to provide culturally appropriate, person-centred care.
Providing care that acknowledges, respects and incorporates cultural and language considerations is an essential part of person-centred care. Watch the video The Importance of the Indigenous Relationship and Cultural Awareness Courses to understand how these courses are relevant to all Canadians, not just healthcare providers.
The courses are designed for self-paced learning. They are available to anyone, free of charge
