Amplifying Indigenous voices is crucial for transforming how we conduct business to advance reconciliation and achieve measurable results. Yet, engaging and consulting with Indigenous Peoples and reflecting their input in the design and delivery of programs and services is a challenge that persists across federal departments.

This event showcases how Natural Resources Canada, specifically through its newly established sector, Nòkwewashk, has initiated changes to amplify Indigenous voices in their department's approach to cultural competency training, including in the work of its Elders-in-Residence program, research ethics and program delivery.

Participants will receive practical guidance to address the challenges and opportunities involved in advancing reconciliation within their own departments, as well as strategies for sustaining partnerships and fostering continued collaboration.
