The First Peoples of Canada: How Heath Equity Can Be Improved By Understanding Our History


Plenary Speaker



The training provides an understanding of the impacts of historical trauma specifically Indian residential schools and segregated Indian hospitals. The participants will learn how trauma manifests itself through behaviours that are hurtful and damaging to relationships in the workplace. Participants will examine how personal biases and questioning the development of stereotypical patterns is an ongoing and active process of recognizing and addressing individual, institutional, and systemic racism. This keynote presentation explores how to engage critically in anti-racism and enact anti-racist practices in health.
