  • PEI Legal Community Undertakes Cultural Competency Training February 3, 2016The P.E.I Law Society, in collaboration with the indigenous Mi'kmaq community, is among the first in the country to respond to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada's Call to Action. The TRC was established to inform all Canadians about the legacy of Indian Residential Schools. Among the 94 Calls to Action outlined in its Report the TRC asked law societies to provide cultural competency training to their members.

    In response, the Law Society of P.E.I. established the Call To Action committee and partnered with the P.E.I. branch of the Canadian Bar Association to begin the process of creating cultural awareness in the Island legal community. The first in a series of sessions planned will take place on February 3rd. The day-long event will specifically examine the history and legacy of Residential Schools in Canada. The Call to Action Committee plans to continue to work toward the goal of developing cultural competency. Future sessions will focus on providing education in other specific areas identified in the TRC Report, including the United Nations Declaration on The Rights of Indigenous Peoples, Treaties and Aboriginal Rights, Indigenous Law and Aboriginal - Crown Relations. Each session will be developed following engagement with, and direction from the leadership of the indigenous Mi'kmaq. Read More >
