Indigenous communities throughout northwestern Ontario often experience cultural, geographical and other barriers to service. Confederation College’s Native Child and Family Services program focuses on how to effectively overcome these barriers. You’ll learn how to help connect people with the services they need in their everyday lives in Thunder Bay and throughout the region. Most importantly, you’ll learn how to work with Indigenous children and families and advocate for a better future for Indigenous peoples. Topics covered include social services, Indigenous language, culture and history, contemporary Indigenous society, Indigenous healing interventions and practices, child welfare and development, social justice and advocacy, governance, policy and so much more. Expand your ways of knowing, challenge your positionality, learn ways to decolonize and embrace Indigeneity. The time for Indigenous resurgence is now.
