Cultural Education Initiatives & Seeing the Light Conference

Our first Seeing the Light Conference took place on Wednesday, June 1, 2016: “Inuit Cultural Education for Service Providers: Inuit Parenting, Education, Historical Trauma, Communication and Language. The second conference was held on Friday, November 4, 2016, called “Inuit Cultural Education for School Professionals: Through the Voices of Inuit Students and Parents”. Both the conferences have been well received.

These series of conferences are meant to share our incredible community’s knowledge with front-line service providers including teachers, police and emergency services, social workers, foster/adoptive parents, hospital staff, and anyone interested in learning about Inuit history and culture, and wanting to provide culturally-safe services.

We are now hosting our third conference on Tuesday, May 9, 2017. From 9:00 am to 4 pm at the Vanier Richelieu Community Centre, 300 Pères-Blancs Ave. Follow the link below to download a Registration Form.
