Call for writers/presenters for First Nations, Métis, Inuit workshop

OSSTF/FEESO is looking for members to form a team of writers to develop a workshop that will better educate our membership about First Nations, Métis and Inuit (FNMI) culture and history, as well as to understand the impact and legacy of the Indian Residential School system. The development of this workshop was approved at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Provincial Assembly (AMPA) as part of the Annual Action Plan.

It also represents OSSTF/FEESO’s contribution to following through on some of the recommendations from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, specifically to better educate workers about FNMI issues.

Application forms have been sent to local presidents and are available to all members in the myOSSTF section of the provincial website. We are looking for members who:

  • Have a strong knowledge and background in FNMI history, knowledge and culture
  • Can secure time release
  • Have experience in writing curriculum and workshop materials
  • Have experience in presenting workshops

Interested members should submit the complete application form as well as two letters of reference to Gary Fenn at Provincial Office no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 30.

In addition, some members of the writing team may be asked to become presenters for this workshop in future years.

For more information, please contact Gary Fenn at Provincial Office.
