The Welcoming Communities Program is funded by Nova Scotia Immigration and Population Growth (IPG). The following workshops are therefore delivered free of cost to groups and organizations in Nova Scotia and can be tailored to your specific needs. An Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppressive framework is used, as well as a client-focused, trauma-informed approach.
This 3-hour workshop, built on the principles of Adult Education, offers participants an overview of the concepts of equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI), and how these ideas relate to newcomers to our Province. Different modalities will be utilized during the interactive training session, such as videos, activities, and small and large group discussions. You are encouraged to bring your excitement and curiosity, as you increase your awareness, knowledge, understanding, and preparedness to create welcoming and inclusive environments.
