Instructor-Led Workshop
Gain Insights into Canada's History of Racism and Colonization

History of Racism and Colonialism in Canada

Delving into the roots of Turtle Island, we explore the rich tapestry of Indigenous cultures, the profound impact of colonization, and the often-overlooked history of slavery and selective immigration in Canada. This session navigates the nuanced relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities, shedding light on pivotal historical moments and the enduring consequences that shape our present. From selective immigration policies to systemic issues, we unravel the threads of our collective past, examining the persistent cultural stereotypes and inequalities that persist today. The session includes poignant discussions on reconciliation and actionable steps to combat racism, empowering participants to contribute to a more inclusive and equitable future.
