Stepping Up Course Registration


A 12 hour course that provides an opportunity for non-Indigenous people to begin to explore their roles and responsibilities in the Truth and Reconciliation process.


The Truth and Reconciliation Commission invites us to talk about the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. As non-Indigenous people, we might be unsure about our place in such conversations. We wonder what we can possibly do; we think we don’t know enough; we fear that we might say or do the wrong thing and make matters worse.


This six-part course gives us a chance to talk together, to address difficult issues, to share our hopes and fears, and to learn new ways of thinking, being and acting. Anyone is welcome to take the course, and the focus is on the growth of non-Indigenous people who wish to be part of reconciliation efforts within Canada.


The course will be offered in two concurrently running sessions for six weeks. One group will meet on Tuesdays and the other group will meet on Thursdays.  The sessions will be from 5 -7 p.m., beginning September 11th/September 13th.    All sessions take place in the Orchards and Tides Room at the Kings County Municipal Complex, 87 Cornwallis Street in Kentville. Free parking is available and the Municipal Complex is on the bus route.  Course materials and refreshments will be provided. There is no cost to participate in this course.


Participants must commit to attending all six sessions, and are asked to indicate which group they choose to be in when registering.  Participants will remain with their chosen group for the duration of the course.


Seats are limited, and will be assigned on a "first come, first served" basis.  Upon receiving your registration, we will contact you to confirm your place in the course.
