The Niagara Peninsula Aboriginal Area Management Board (NPAAMB) is soliciting proposals from proponents who will research, facilitate discussion, and present information that will form the basis of an Indigenous cultural training/gathering to be delivered specifically to employers and training and education institutes on March 27, 2019 in Hamilton, Ontario. The training will help advance reconciliation between Indigenous and non-Indigenous stakeholders in the employment and training sector, and ultimately, help urban Indigenous youth on their career paths. The Truth and Reconciliation Call to Action #92 speaks to this in more depth. The full wording can be found in Appendix A.
