Indigenous Leadership Development Institute Inc. Launches Indigenous Awareness (Canadian Edition)


JUNE 29, 2021 WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA – Canadian organizations, corporations and individuals can now access a new online tool to better educate themselves and their workforces about the history, traditions, values and beliefs of Indigenous Peoples in Canada, taking a step forward in responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action, thanks to a new program created by the Indigenous Leadership Development Institute (ILDI).

ILDI is proud this course has been developed by ILDI with Indigenous youth, elders, educators and knowledge keepers

The four-part online training supports businesses and corporations to take positive action with interactive learning and information about:

  • The history and legacy of residential schools,
  • The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples,
  • Treaties and Indigenous rights,
  • Indigenous law, and Indigenous-Crown relations

The course was redesigned to provide access and accommodate employers, employees, professionals, students, and those who want to improve their understanding of Indigenous cultures and learn about the joint histories of Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. It is competency-based and self-paced to provide accessibility for all users whatever their learning styles and prior knowledge of Indigenous matters. The accessible program is an introductory and foundational step in raising awareness of Indigenous peoples’ values, beliefs and both unique and shared histories.

Once the participant has passed each module test, a downloadable Certificate of Completion is provided to the participant. Cost of the training is $39.95 CAD + GST.

ILDI, based in the centre of Turtle Island in what is known as Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, was founded in 2000. It operates with an all Indigenous leadership team and board. The organization is at the forefront of national and international training and development and brings global learning and advancement to Indigenous leaders, communities and groups with tailor-made training and education solutions.
