For over a decade we have been the premiere and only provider of Indigenous Awareness training in Canada that is delivered by a three-member, senior First Nations, Métis and Inuit team and an Elder. We design full day, half day and executive level half day sessions as well as custom designed interactive anti-bias and reconciliation components. First Peoples Group will create training for your organization that is relevant, focused and informative.
Indigenous Awareness Training
Our hallmark one-day Indigenous awareness training session is without a doubt the most effective,
comprehensive and professional one-day session in the country.
Our training gives participants an understanding about the historical, legal, social and political circumstances that are particular to the Original peoples in Canada. This training can be developed to suit the specific needs of your organization. For example, in the health sector, participants may require a more critical understanding of Indigenous issues in terms of access to health and health determinants.
FPG clients include Indigenous Services Canada, Health Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada, school boards and large private and public-sector companies and agencies including the Northwest Company and the Ontario Clean Water Agency.
Cultural Competency Training
Cultural competency training is usually intended to introduce steps towards shifting the workplace environment to become more culturally competent and responsive to the needs of Indigenous clients and policies affecting
First Nations’, Métis and Inuit and staff.
It is designed to enable organizations to establish and implement practical goals and to incorporate Indigenous approaches to operating procedures in order to become more effective. FPG’s facilitators will develop participant-involved training exercises and scenarios that are unique to your organization in addition to the development of best practices, and how to work towards objectives and work through barriers at a practical level.
This training can be done separately from the Indigenous Awareness Training, though completing both of these training sessions will create more understanding and buy-in within your organization.
