The Indigenous Reconciliation Awareness Module provides education for Management and Staff on the history of Indigenous peoples and how to implement reconciliation within your workplace to foster Indigenous inclusion in New Brunswick's economy.
JEDI will help your organization to understand Indigenous history in Canada and facilitate discussions on reconciliation with you and your team so that you will be more effective in your communications and interactions with Indigenous peoples.
“Thank you for the Indigenous Reconciliation Awareness Module training that you provided to our team. It’s difficult to put into words just how profound the experience was for me. Your IRAM training launched me to a whole new level of comprehension and compassion… and a desire to act, take part in changes and Reconciliation even more. You are all skilled communicators and trainers and I appreciated your depth of knowledge, incredible openness, strength and vision.”
*Please note: Our prices are kept as low as possible to make the training accessible to everyone but as we do not have any funding for this program we do have to charge a fee to cover our costs.

What is Reconciliation?
Reconciliation is the process by which individuals or communities attempt to arrive at a place of mutual understanding and acceptance. There is no one approach to achieving reconciliation but building trust by examining painful shared histories, acknowledging each other's truths, and a common vision are essential to the process.
