I appreciated the educational and informative tone. It was neither preachy nor did it shy away from hard truths.
On behalf of the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC), we would like to thank you for providing the cultural awareness education session to the RAIC board of directors and staff on October 12th and 13th. The session has educated us, made us reflect on our current actions and on how we can all do better as a person and as an organization. It is an important step forward for the RAIC to show its commitment to truth and reconciliation and a concrete action towards equity and justice.
John Brown, RAIC President & Mike Brennan, RAIC CEO
I would like to thank you for the excellent (Path) training last week. The session was all at once informative, practical, inspiring, philosophical and presented in a way that can be integrated into our daily work and personal lives. Board Members gave us all tremendous feedback on the impact of your presentation.

We were highly pleased with your work for us. The NVision team are very personable and engaging, and the literature/evidence review will be helpful to us as we move forward in our understanding of comprehensive indigenous school health.

I was nervous for my first online course and everyone was so helpful, I got used to it right away.

Although I went into the course thinking I had a solid understanding of indigenous history in
Canada, I realized quickly that my understand was very basic – there is such a rich history to be discovered and so many nuances to understand when it comes to indigenous issues.
The Nunavut History and Governance course reminded me of things in Nunavut’s history that I had no idea about, I feel inspired to live here and think everyone should take this course.

NVision provided a succinct, entirely inclusive workshop about the diversity of First Nations, the complexities of Métis and the uniqueness of Inuit. The presenter created a space where individuals felt safe to ask their questions and work through scenarios.
Jaime Morse - Educator, National Gallery of Canada
Shocked at what I didn’t know!
Great facilitation! Good energy, great delivery, informed presenter, empathetic and open.
Participant in Indigenous Cultural Awareness workshop
The entire course is valuable and should be mandatory for all. The part that meant the most to me is about the residential schools, 60s scoop, etc. It is very disturbing that these things happened and yet I never learned about them in school. I wish I could help to make things right
Most valuable were the portions that discussed cultural differences. Understanding those differences is a step towards reconciliation.
I thought I had more knowledge about Indigenous people.
The Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Training has helped our staff be more sensitive and better understand Aboriginal heritage and culture. This training will be put to work enhancing our outreach to Aboriginal communities so we can better work together for the success of the forest sector.
David Lindsay - President and CEO, Forest Products Association of Canada
Regarding NVision’s Indigenous Cultural Awareness Training: “Very helpful, super informative! Glad I participated in this workshop and I recommend it to everyone.”
The expertise and professionalism of NVision Insight Group Inc. in working with First Nations, Métis, and Inuit partners and organizations ensured that they were well suited to act as a provincial project facilitator for a community-led mapping exercise in seven communities in Ontario. In everything they did, NVision worked from a place of cultural safety and humility.
I had much positive feedback on your presentation. Your collaborative approach and willingness to assist us in meeting our timelines is most appreciated! You have been great to work with.
Christine Malone - City of Ottawa
I would highly recommend NVision if you’re looking Indigenous Cultural Awareness training.
Within three hours Nvision’s Cultural Awareness workshop covered terminology, history and historical values, treaties and land claims, colonial history and reconciliation. There was also an opportunity to work through scenarios and apply what we’d learned.
It was a pleasure working with your company on this project. The Project Leader was very helpful in guiding our team here at Atikameksheng Anishnawbek, and a valuable resource when it came to hosting the workshops and outreach sessions for our Comprehensive Community Plan.
