As educators ourselves, the Red Rising Education team knows how important and also how daunting it can be to integrate Indigenous pedagogy and ways of knowing into traditional learning spaces. The inspiration for this project came from consultation with local educators in Winnipeg, Manitoba, who said they wanted to teach Indigenous topics but didn’t know how to begin and were afraid of getting it ‘wrong’. After hearing these concerns, the Red Rising Education team focused on developing resources to help educators incorporate Indigenous perspectives into their classrooms in an Indigenous way.

Food & Beverage Manitoba

Food & Beverage Manitoba Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (I.D.E.A)

The food and beverage processing sector must adapt and embracing equity, diversity and inclusion within the boardroom and production floor alike is a significant starting point. The moral imperative for diversity has been clear for decades, with more and more consumers being hyper-aware of this need for diversity and representation, but it is now apparent that diversity is at the heart of prosperity, competitiveness, and the future growth of most industries. Canada is a country of immigrants built on the foundation of settlement and forced displacement of Indigenous populations. The twin demands of truth and reconciliation and embracing newcomers can not only help businesses address the growing labour shortage, but it can also help ensure they are well positioned to innovate, solve novel problems, and attract top tier talent.

There are 11 provincial peer-based organizations (sometimes called advisory councils) that guide the work of the MHRN in different regions. The MHRN supports peer-based organizations in the work that they do to help their communities be safer by supporting peer-led projects.

Manitoba Harm Reduction (MHRN)

MHRN Training & Tools

Harm Reduction is a best practice model for providing services in health care and social service programming for people who use substances and are impacted by colonial and structural violence; particularly the War on (BIPOC) People Who Use Drugs. Harm Reduction is more than needle distribution, and in fact, you do not need to do distribution to work from this model. Rather than focus on individual behaviour, our approach to harm reduction focuses on how systems create and exacerbate harms to people who use drugs and other oppressed groups, often by design and with intent. All workshops are delivered through an anti-oppression and anti-racism lens.

Most southern First Nation parents are unaware of their rights when dealing with Child and Family Services (CFS). The child welfare system can be overwhelming and intimidating to navigate, and the lack of awareness of parent’s rights further compounds these issues. In order to directly address this problem, the Chiefs’ Standing Committee on Child Welfare issued a Directive to the Southern First Nation Network of Care that requires their child and family service workers to verbally inform First Nation parents of their rights when workers attend to child protection matters.

Many Canadians are not aware that sex trafficking of women and girls happens in Canada and is targeted to Canadian women and girls. The major risk factor for sex trafficking in Canada is being a girl. True equality for women and girls will not be achieved until we eradicate all forms of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. Organizations like the Ma Mawi Wi Chi Itata Centre are taking a leadership role in addressing the sexual exploitation/trafficking of girls under the age of 18. As an Indigenous community, we continue to work together so our families can valued, respected and engaged.
