Update Dec 2018
ALIGN Indigenous Advisory Committee Meeting will be held in Edmonton Jan. 17, 2019 to discuss the ALIGN’s potential involvement in developing an Indigenous Cultural Knowing Framework for agencies
Update October 2018
The ALIGN Indigenous Advisory Group continues to convenes in order to gain some guidance in planning for the upcoming year. Some of the current recommendations that we are working on are:
- It was suggested that we convene a circle of government decision makers and others to share what is being done in the research and community sectors.
- To bring together a group who has a strong understanding of Trauma and Inter-generational Trauma to help guide the next step process.
- A lot of Agencies have found ways that work for families and we should help highlight these approaches.
Update October 2016
ALIGN is presently reconvening and regrouping the Indigenous Advisory Group with a focus on becoming familiarized with the truth and reconciliation calls to action and the UN rights of children as well as meeting the new ADM for the Community Engagement area of the MHS currently working on engagement strategies to address the indigenous concerns of the child welfare system. Please stay tuned for further information in this important area of work.
I saw news clip on this - they call it Ghosting. Many businesses struggling with no shows for interviews -people working a few days and not showing up again - was concerns its becoming normal &acceptable. Anyone else dealing with this? Suggestions on how best to address this? twitter.com/WestHendayYeg/…
It’s unacceptable. What people don’t often know is you will be working 30-80 hours a month for free. The amount of time spent setting up interviews only to have no one show or training ppl only to have them quit 2 weeks in. Paper work, appeals, lack of funding, it’s all very hard— Leah McRorie (@WestHendayYeg) February 7, 2019
