CATCA 2023 has ended

CATCA recognizes that convention is situated on Treaty 7, South of Red Deer River, the traditional territory of the Blackfoot, Tsuu T’ina, and Stoney Nakoda peoples, and that the North of Red Deer River Treaty 6, traditional Métis, Cree, and Saulteaux territory. We honour the First Peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, and we give thanks for the land.

The Indian Act has left a deep scar for many. Throughout this session, participants will explore foundational information about the Indian Act, and examine historical and contemporary impacts of this aggressive, assimilation tactic. Participants will leave this session with an increased understanding of the complexities of the Indian Act, including resources and strategies to contribute towards reconciliation.
