Your amazing delivery of this crucial content was so appreciated by all and I know I personally learned a lot through these sessions. You did a great job of making this impactful even if you had less time than ideal to do so. Thank you for sharing some very important and difficult truths with our participants.
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.
Prior to The Path, I participated in a blanket ceremony and other in-person Indigenous training. As a member of the LSA, I completed The Path shortly after residential school graves were being discovered and reported in the media. I thought I would set aside an hour a day to finish The Path over several days/months…instead, I found myself addicted and stayed up fairly late one night to get through the e-course. I absolutely loved it and only wished it were longer! Many, many thanks are owed to the LSA and those who were involved in making it available to us.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learned much that I unfortunately never knew before.
Thank you so very much for making this program available to me – it was thought-provoking, informative and made me cry at the treatment of children in residential schools. At the same time, I was so very proud of the young people of Grassy Meadows and their excellent music video. As Senator Murray Sinclair pointed out, education is the first step and is critical to understanding how to move forward. I couldn’t stop myself – even though my plan was to do one module per day!! I am very proud of my certificate. miigwetch
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.
The CBA is proud of its collaboration with NVision. Our partners in the company are incredibly flexible, responsive, and expert, and the quality of The Path is unmatched. The work we have done together represents a really important step forward in our reconciliation journey as we seek to know more and do better.
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 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
