CFN’s Indigenous Education for Newcomers Program

Lisa C. Newcomer Information, Settlement & Community News, Settlement News

Nowadays, Canada’s immigration policy is among the most welcoming worldwide. Every year, we welcome new immigrants to Canada. Waves of immigration and settlement forced many Indigenous peoples away from their traditional lands and disrupted their traditional ways of life.

As a newcomer to Canada, it is important for you to learn about the history. The Centre for Newcomers (CFN) runs an Indigenous Education for Newcomers program. This program creates opportunities to bring newcomers and Indigenous participants together through dialogue circles, storytelling and culturally appropriate educational workshops. These activities promote discussions, to honour different historical and cultural perspectives; to create bridges of understanding and appreciation between newcomers and indigenous people.

Watch this short video about the Indigenous Education for Newcomers program.

If you wish to join this program, please contact: Tina Brown at 403.569.3341. Email: t.brown@centrefornewcomers.ca.
