    The wealth of knowledge provided in this course was rich and textured with relevant examples, beautiful anecdotes, and great explanations. The mixed content format made it easier to follow and connect to other examples/cases. This course was triggered an awareness-raising of issues affecting Indigenous communities in Canada, drawing practical connections with larger- and smaller-picture frames. This course was a well constructed introduction of the topic of Indigenous Canadians, although it is not where the work stops!

  2. Sarah Johnston

    As someone who has been reading books, listening to podcasts, watching films and interviews, etc, on this topic – I found this course to be very necessary. There was a lot of new information to absorb that I hadn’t come across yet. I especially appreciated the section that discussed how to confront racist comments and actions in a way that won’t make the other party defensive, and make them more likely to engage in a meaningful conversation with you. That’s definitely something I will be practicing.

  3. Bradlee Zrudlo

    I absolutely loved this course. I feel so empowered to make a difference with my new knowledge and to continue my learning journey with humility. I highly recommend that employers purchase this for their employees. I was so motivated to keep progressing from section to section because it was so well done and so enlightening. Thank you so much Rose and the IRG, well done!!

  4. Alex Bracanovich

    This course educated me on the correct terminology to use. Competence and humility, how to approach sensitive situations with tactfulness, the section on challenging racism was also extremely interesting, specifically the mock conversations with uninformed people/coworkers being racist. These activities aid in becoming an ally through support of Indigenous people and combating racism at every level of society. The section on reconciliation shows ways to contribute to the restructuring of the flawed system created under the control of institutional racism. True reconciliation is something that I believe everyone should be more involved in.

  5. Marla Kailly

    This is a thoughtfully designed course that takes you from knowledge to action and challenges you along the way to do some of your own research and reflection. Current and very relevant sources are worked into each subject area, plus additional material is provided for you to take away and allows you to keep learning: at your workplace, and in your personal life with your circle of friends and family. There are also concrete steps offered to help you move into action with reconciliation and be a true ally. I highly recommend taking this course!

  6. Judith Slivinski

    I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to complete this course, and also very much look forward to completing the 7Week Challenge as well. I resonate with the assertion that “cultural safety is built in relationship and practiced in real life,” and have been practicing for 30 years in relationship with my Indigenous brothers and sisters, and realize every day how much I do not know. I am indebted to all who have and will continue to teach me.

  7. Danielle Bishof

    This course was fantastic – I would highly recommend all Canadians complete this course!! It was eye-opening, engaging and interactive with very effective use of multimedia. The course really emphasized the history of colonization, the importance of Indigenous cultural safety and outlined tangible steps towards challenging racism and reconciliation. I’m looking forward to completing the 7 week challenge!

  8. Rashi Khare

    As a prior healthcare practitioner and current change agent within the Canadian healthcare system, it is my strong opinion that this course, or at the very least select modules, should be mandatory training for anyone working within healthcare. We all come into contact with people from cultures outside of ours in our everyday lives. The difference in healthcare is that we do this at people’s most vulnerable moments. How we react, treat, and care is of greatest importance during this vulnerable time and highly impacted by our level of understanding and empathy. This course helps us on that journey.
