BCAC is pleased to provide this training especially for our members and key agriculture advocates within the sector. This Indigenous Relations training event will provide a safe environment in which to ask questions and gain competencies in working more effectively with Indigenous Peoples. The intended audience for this training is non-Indigenous learners. In particular, this foundational course is for learners with little to no knowledge of or experience working with Indigenous Peoples. The training will provide generalized information about Indigenous Peoples - whether First Nations, Inuit, or Metis - across Canada as well as equip you with practical ways you can engage directly with local Indigenous communities.
