Leadership Development 70 - Unionism on Turtle Island

Indigenous Peoples (Métis, Inuit and First Nations) are the original inhabitants of this territory of North America, also known as Turtle Island. They make up the original labour force of Canada and all of us benefit from the wealth of knowledge, experiences, and land that they share. In this course, Unionism on Turtle Island, participants will be asked to critically examine the privileges and advantages Canadians have gained by the continued marginalization of Indigenous Peoples. 

This three-day workshop will cover topics such as:

  • Historical timelines
  • Employment issues
  • The legal basis for Aboriginal rights
  • Explaining Aboriginal rights to union members
  • Common visions and causes between Aboriginal and union struggles
  • Building links between Aboriginal and labour communities
  • Candid conversations with an Elder

Length: 3 days

Pre-requisites: Open to all members
