ECONOMIC RECONCILIATION WITH SXWPILEMAÁT SIYÁM: An interview series

"Building good relations with Indigenous Peoples is an imperative to sustainable business, but many companies struggle to create equitable, trust-based, long-lasting partnerships that meet the needs of all parties."

Our Indigenomics instructor Sxwpilemaát Siyám, also known as Chief Leanne Joe, explores this topic in an interview with Embedding Project and she teaches it as part of our CED Certificate in Community Economic Development, too.

FREE PUBLIC LECTURES: MAY 25 & JUNE 15

All welcome. Register today!

SFU CED instructor Ione Smith from Upland Consulting will discuss Climate-Proofing Food Systems on May 25 and Darren Enns from the Town of Banff will walk us through Banff's improved pedestrian walkways and other improvements on June 15. 
 

 

The Community Economic Development Certificate Program will accept applications for the next cohort, starting May 30, 2022 until May 27. 

 

"SFU’s CED program was a life-changing experience for me. It gave me an understanding and language for my gut values and some affirmation that I am not weird or alone in the world." Rashmi N.

"Worth every penny. If I had the time I’d take the course again! It was a game-changer and has provided me with new perspectives that have continued to stay me in my daily work and personal life." Eden Y.

The program's 20+ years of success speak volumes, too! We encourage you to join us this May and have your own game-changing time.
