Indigenous Awareness: Online Course Available

The Diocese of Rupert’s Land and St. John’s College have co-sponsored an eighteen-hour online course aimed at increasing knowledge and understanding of the issues face by Indigenous peoples in Canada, and particularly within the area covered by our diocese. The course covers subjects including the history of contact with Europeans, the content of treaties, the place of the Métis people, and the role of the Anglican Church in colonization, residential schools and the current moves towards a self-determining Church.

While participation in this course (or equivalent) is mandated for all active clergy and those training for ordination, it is open to anyone!

Registration costs $40; once you have paid your fee, you will be sent the course syllabus, readings, and links listen to the lecture sessions. To register, forward your fee to the Diocese of Rupert’s Land.
If you have any questions, please contact Heather McCance.
