Core Online ICS Training

There are still seats available for this fiscal year.
Register today for this important training program. 

Indigenous Cultural Safety (ICS) Training is an interactive and facilitated online training program for all professionals working in the Ontario health and social service systems. It addresses the need for increased Indigenous cultural safety within the system by bringing to light the service provider bias and the legacies of colonization that continue to negatively affect service accessibility and health outcomes for Indigenous people.

The Core ICS Training Courses (both health and mental health available) are designed as foundational courses to increase knowledge and enhance self-awareness. They provide a vital opportunity for health professionals to examine the ways in which their own culture, education and history have shaped their health practice, especially with regard to stereotypes that impact Indigenous experiences of the health system and the present-day realities of colonization that shape Indigenous health and wellness. There are also post-training modules available on a limited basis for those who have completed the core health or core mental health training focusing on From Bystander to Ally and Unpacking our Colonial Relationship.
