Indigenous Education for Newcomers

CFN is proud to be a part of the Indigenous Education for Newcomers Initiative, an initiative that addresses the historic injustice and trauma that has contributed to deep social, cultural, economic and spiritual challenges for Canada’s Indigenous people.

Working in partnership with Making Treaty 7, University of Calgary, Calgary Police Services, Calgary Bridge Foundation for Youth, Calgary Immigrant Educational Society, and the 12 Community Safety Initiative, along with City Councillor Brian Pincott and Federal MP and Cabinet Minister Kent Hehr, our ultimate goal is to support efforts aimed at ending cycles of systemic discrimination and abuse faced by Indigenous people through culturally appropriate educational workshops on Indigenous issues, meaningful partnerships that seek to create alliances for public education and awareness among both partners and within the broader community.
