San'yas: Indigenous Cultural Safety Training Program

Back to Members page

We do not have a formal mission statement - Our program is mission driven to end anti-Indigenous racism and discrimination in Canada. The San’yas: Indigenous Cultural Safety Training is a unique, on-line training program designed to enhance self-awareness, knowledge, and strengthen the skills of those who work both directly and indirectly with Indigenous people. The goal of the Indigenous Cultural Safety (ICS) training is to develop understanding and promote positive partnerships between service providers and Indigenous people. An Inter-racial team of facilitators guide and support each learner through interactive course materials. The course participants examine culture, stereotyping, and the consequences and legacies of colonization. Participants will learn about terminology; diversity; aspects of colonial history such as Indian residential schools and Indian Hospitals and a time line of historical events.
